Tigers bring back pitcher Ryan Perry to minor-league deal
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

The Tigers brought back a familiar face to their organization. 

Detroit signed pitcher Ryan Perry to a minor-league deal, according to mlive.com. Perry was a former first-round pick from the 2008 draft, though he didn't pan out as the Tigers initially thought. 

"Our scouts saw him throw side sessions, bullpens," Tigers assistant general manager Al Avila said. "They said he looked healthy and he was throwing hard."

The last time Perry played in the majors was in 2012 with the Nationals. He posted a 10.13 ERA in seven appearances.

Tigers SS Jose Iglesias does some on-field work Friday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias, who used an Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill on Tuesday, finally took to the field on Friday for some baserunning and other workouts, per MLive.com. The 25-year-old shortstop missed all of last season due to fractures in both of his shins.

"We ran bases today, then he took grounders, did the fundamental and he hit," manager Brad Ausmus said. "When he got done hitting, I sent him inside. I didn't want him standing out in the outfield shagging. I don't want to say that's going to be the straw that breaks the camel's back, but any little bit of time we can get him off his feet early helps. So I sent him in about 10 minutes early."

Tigers' Joel Hanrahan unsure about his next step
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Tigers reliever Joel Hanrahan isn't sure what's next after being shut down from throwing, according to Peter Gammons. 

Hanrahan had Tommy John surgery back in 2013, and did not pitch in the majors last season while he was recovering. He had trouble getting through a recent bullpen session, and was shut down by Detroit. 

The 33-year-old has a career 3.85 ERA over 404 2/3 innings.

Tigers backup catcher Bryan Holaday tweaked his stance, swing
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Tigers backup catcher Bryan Holaday told reporters he has tweaked his stance and swing after experiencing an "eye-opening" 2014 campaign, according to the Detroit Free Press

"I've made a lot of adjustments; I feel better and I'm more confident," Holaday said. "I've done a little tweaking with my stance and my swing to make it more efficient. Basically shortened the swing to make my timing better."

Holaday hit .231/.266/.276 in 171 at-bats last season. Manager Brad Ausmus appears to be impressed by Holaday's adjustments at the plate early on.

"He looks good swinging the bat," Ausmus said. "It's early, but he looks good."
