Tazawa was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Tazawa signed a minor-league deal with the Angels in mid-July and returns to the majors due to September expanded rosters. The 32-year-old allowed 21 runs (20 earned) over 20 innings before he was designated for assignment and subsequently released by the Marlins in late May.
Tazawa signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Friday, Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports. Tazawa was let go by the Tigers on Monday. He sits with a 9.00 ERA and 2.05 WHIP with 24 strikeouts over 20 innings in the big leagues this season, and he'll report to the Angels' spring training facility in Arizona, per Hernandez.
Tazawa was released by the Tigers on Monday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports. He was with the Tigers for a little over a month, giving up eight runs in 7.2 innings at Triple-A. Tazawa has a 4.16 ERA in 387.1 MLB innings, but has not been a serviceable big-league reliever since 2015 with the Red Sox.
Tazawa signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Monday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports. Tazawa was cut loose by the Marlins earlier in the year after struggling to a 9.00 ERA, 2.10 WHIP and 5.9 BB/9 across 20 innings. He did strike out 24 batters over those frames, and owns a career 4.16 ERA across 387.1 big-league innings, so the veteran reliever should be able to work his way to the Tigers' bullpen after some time in the minors, assuming he holds his own.
Tazawa was released by the Marlins on Wednesday, Matthew DeFranks of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Tazawa was designated for assignment May 17, and he'll look to catch on elsewhere after his departure from the Marlins. He failed to show much consistency out of the bullpen through 22 games, posting an alarming 9.00 ERA with 13 walks across 20 innings.
