  • Nunez cleared waivers and was outrighted to Detroit's alternate training site Monday. Nunez failed to break camp in the big leagues despite posting an .816 OPS last year, though he was called up in mid-April and played seven games. Judging by his .148/.207/.444 line in those games, the Tigers were probably right not to include him on their Opening Day roster, and it looks as though the rest of the league agrees.

  • Nunez was designated for assignment Wednesday. He was hitting .148 with two home runs, one walk and eight strikeouts through 27 at-bats. While this may make the big-league roster worse in the short term with Miguel Cabrera (biceps) likely out for another week, the Tigers are not prioritizing a journeyman designated hitter like Nunez as part of their rebuild. Zack Short was recalled from the alternate training site in a corresponding move.

  • Nunez isn't starting Saturday's game against the Athletics. Nunez went 4-for-23 with two home runs and eight strikeouts while starting in each of the last six games. Wilson Ramos will serve as the designated hitter Saturday while Grayson Greiner starts behind the plate.

  • Nunez went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Astros. Nunez went yard for the second straight day, part of a barrage of five Detroit home runs in the 8-2 win. The 27-year-old didn't make the Opening Day roster, but with Miguel Cabrera (biceps) currently on the 10-day injured list, Nunez is getting a shot at regular playing time and making the most of the opportunity.

  • Nunez went 2-for-5 with a double, a home run and an additional run scored in Monday's win over the Astros. Both of Nunez's extra-base hits were off Zack Greinke sliders, as noted by Brian McTaggart of MLB.com. The homer was Nunez's first with the Tigers. He replaced Miguel Cabrera (biceps) on the roster and has replaced Cabrera in the lineup the past two days, batting cleanup against a lefty Sunday and seventh against Greinke on Monday.
