Baez (undisclosed) was released by the Tigers on Friday. The 25-year-old was on the 7-day injured list at Double-A Erie with an undisclosed injury, but he was released to make room on the 40-man roster for Edwin Jackson. Baez spent the bulk of the season at Triple-A Toledo, posting a 7.36 ERA, 1.86 WHIP and 18:14 K:BB across 22 innings.

Baez (illness) was promoted from High-A Lakeland to Double-A Erie on Saturday. Triple-A Toledo placed Baez on its 7-day injured list earlier this month due to an illness, but the right-hander seems to be back to full strength now. He made two appearances at Lakeland over the past week in what was essentially a rehab assignment, covering three innings between those outings. Baez will likely continue pitching out of the Erie bullpen for the time being before eventually earning another look at the Triple-A level if his performance warrants a move up the minor-league ladder.
Baez (illness) is expected to begin a rehab assignment at High-A Lakeland on Sunday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports. Baez has been stuck on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Toledo since early June with what was described as a "minor illness," but his month-plus absence suggests his ailment was more significant than the Tigers may have let on. In any case, Baez's impending rehab outing suggests he'll trending in the right direction health-wise. He'll likely make at least a couple appearances in the lower rungs of the minors before slotting back into the Toledo bullpen.
