The Tigers optioned Haase to their alternative training site Monday.

The transaction officially ends Haase's bid for a spot on the active 30-man Opening Day roster, and the backstop could be at risk of losing his spot on the 40-man roster as well if the Tigers add other players before the start of the season. Detroit appears set to proceed with Austin Romine and Grayson Greiner as its top two catchers.
