    • Dixon's contract was selected Tuesday from the Tigers' alternate training site. He logged a .248/.290/.435 slash line with 15 home runs and five steals in 118 games with the Tigers last year but then lost his 40-man roster spot and had been working out this summer at the alternate site. Jonathan Schoop (wrist) was transferred to the 45-day injured list in a corresponding move. Dixon should serve as a bench infielder for the rest of the week.

    • The Tigers reassigned Dixon to their alternate training site in Toledo on Thursday. Though he led the Tigers with 15 home runs in 2019, Dixon was still a below-league-average hitter (86 wRC+) and didn't provide much value in the field. The Tigers non-tendered him over the winter before bringing him back on a minor-league deal, but he was unable to win a utility job with the club coming out of summer camp.

    • Dixon will be a part of the Tigers' 60-man player pool this season. Dixon was not a member of the 40-man roster, but after slugging a team-high 15 home runs last season, it appeared likely that he'd earn a spot on the expanded roster. The 28-year-old will give the Tigers a veteran option off their bench.

    • Dixon could earn a reserve role if MLB rosters are expanded for the 2020 campaign, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Dixon cleared waivers in January and was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo, which seemed to be his likely starting location in 2020. However, MLB rosters could expand when the regular season is able to begin, and Dixon could end up as a backup option at first, third and both corner outfield spots. The 28-year-old slashed .248/.290/.435 and led the Tigers with 15 home runs in 2019.

    • Dixon cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday. Dixon will remain as organizational depth for the Tigers heading into his age-28 season. His .248/.290/.435 slash line in 118 games last season was acceptable for a bench player who spent time at six different positions but clearly wasn't good enough for any team to view him as a desirable addition.
