  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Option exercised

    The Tigers exercised Barnhart's $7.75 million club option for 2022 on Sunday.

    As expected, the Tigers will keep Barnhart for 2022 after acquiring him from Cincinnati on Wednesday. Though he lacks the offensive potential of Eric Haase, Barnhart is touted for his defense and figures to be Detroit's primary catching option next season. The 30-year-old is a competent hitter himself, having slashed .247/.317/.368 with seven home runs and 48 RBI in 2021.

  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Acquired by Tigers

    Barnhart was traded from the Reds to the Tigers in exchange for infielder Nick Quintana on Wednesday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    The 30-year-old appeared in 116 games for Cincinnati in 2021 and slashed .247/.317/.368 with seven home runs, 48 RBI and 41 runs during that time. After spending the first eight seasons of his career with the Reds, he's likely in line to serve as Detroit's primary catcher in 2022, even though Eric Haase hit 22 home runs in 2021. Barnhart has a $7.75 million team option for 2022, and the Tigers intend to exercise it, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network.
