    • Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Hangs it up
      By RotoWire Staff

      Saltalamacchia announced his retirement from Major League Baseball on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Saltalamacchia called it a career after appearing in just five games for the Tigers during the 2018 campaign. He joined forces with seven different teams over the course of his 12-year career and finishes with a .232/.306/.408 slash line along with 110 home runs and 381 RBI over 895 total games.

    • Saltalamacchia's contract was selected from Triple-A Toledo on Sunday. The 33-year-old failed to make the big-league roster out of spring training, and his performance at Triple-A during the season did little to warrant a promotion. He batted just .174 with the Mud Hens while striking out 32 percent of the time. Saltalamacchia has a bit of pop, but he poses as little more than a third-string catcher for the remainder of the season.

    • Tigers' Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Gets cut from camp
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Tigers reassigned Saltalamacchia to their minor-league camp Thursday. Saltalamacchia was a late arrival to spring training after remaining unsigned until landing a minor-league deal from Detroit in March, but he would have had difficulty cracking the Opening Day roster even if had stood out throughout the Grapefruit League schedule. Though he offers some pop behind the plate, Saltamacchia's sky-high strikeout rates and sketchy defense make him a less-than-ideal option as a No. 2 backstop.

    • Tigers' Jarrod Saltalamacchia: In camp with Tigers
      By RotoWire Staff

      Saltalamacchia is in camp with the Tigers on Friday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Saltalamacchia is expected to sign a minor-league deal with the club. The journeyman catcher has appeared in 890 games in his 11-year major-league career, including 92 with the Tigers in 2016. He received just 26 major-league plate appearances for Toronto last season and hit .162/.271/.243 in 33 games for Triple-A Buffalo.

    • Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Released again by Toronto
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Blue Jays released Saltalamacchia from his minor-league contract with Triple-A Buffalo on Friday. Saltalamacchia joined the Bisons on a minor-league deal May 16, just 13 days after being released by the Jays following his .117 OPS and 16 strikeouts in 26 MLB plate appearances. The 32-year-old had a .162/.271/.243 slash line in 33 games with Buffalo. A veteran catcher might draw some appeal on the open market, but Saltalamacchia is no longer worth monitoring in fantasy circles.
