    • Steven Moya: Going overseas
      By RotoWire Staff

      Moya signed a one-year contract with the Chunichi Dragons of the Nippon Professional Baseball League in Japan, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports. Moya spent the entire 2017 season in the minor leagues within the Detroit organization, slashing just .166/.222/.344 during 46 games in Triple-A. He played in 31 big-league games in 2016, but wasn't able to make enough of an impression to warrant any more playing time in the majors.

    • Tigers' Steven Moya: Off minor-league DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      Moya (oblique) is back in action for Triple-A Toledo. He is hitting .169/.213/.359 with seven home runs and 57 strikeouts in 142 at-bats. Moya, who cleared waivers at the end of spring training, used to be the definition of a Quadruple-A player, and now he is not even hitting at Triple-A. He does not figure to contribute in the big leagues anytime soon.

    • Tigers' Steven Moya: Out with oblique strain
      By RotoWire Staff

      Moya is on the 7-day DL at Triple-A Toledo with a left oblique strain. After clearing waivers before the season, it's safe to say the 25-year-old power hitter's prospect stock has cratered. He was hitting .161/.196/.355 with five home runs and a horrendous 38:4 K:BB in 93 at-bats.

    • Tigers' Steven Moya: Clears waivers
      By RotoWire Staff

      Moya cleared waivers Friday and will likely be sent to Triple-A Toledo, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports. Moya seems to be on track to return to his 2016 role, serving as organizational depth for the Tigers' outfield. The lefty hit .284/.310/.501 with 20 home runs in Triple-A last season, but failed to truly transfer that success to the major-league level in various opportunities. After a dismal spring (.192/.208/.288) dampened any prospects of a roster spot, it seems Moya will once again be destined for an organizational depth role in 2017.

    • Tigers' Steven Moya: Placed on outright waivers
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Tigers placed Moya on outright waivers Wednesday, ESPN.com's Jayson Stark reports. Moya looked as though he might be in position to see regular at-bats in right field to begin the season with J.D. Martinez (foot) bound for the DL, but the 25-year-old didn't inspire much confidence that he'd be a capable replacement after supplying a .192/.208/.288 batting line in 52 at-bats during spring training. Assuming Moya goes unclaimed off waivers, he'll report to Triple-A Toledo and will face an uphill battle to get back to the big leagues now that he's no longer a member of the 40-man roster. With Moya out of the picture, the Tigers appear set to rely on Mikie Mahtook and Tyler Collins as their primary options in right field until Martinez returns, provided they don't acquire another veteran outfielder before the start of the season.
