Tigers' Taylor Motter: Earns minors deal from Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers signed Motter (face) to a minor-league contract Wednesday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

The 29-year-old recently took part in a tryout camp for the Tigers, who evidently felt he could provide some value to the organization as a utility man. Motter is likely reporting to spring training too late to have a realistic shot at cracking the Opening Day roster, but he could merit a callup at some point in 2019 if he shows well at Triple-A Toledo. He saw action in 17 games in the majors last season between the Twins and Mariners and owns a .191/.263/.312 slash line (58 wRC+) over 411 career plate appearances in the big leagues.

Taylor Motter: Surgery on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motter, who had been playing with Toros Del Este in the Dominican Winter League, relayed Thursday via his personal Twitter account that he left the club and returned to the United States to undergo surgery for his face.

Motter didn't offer specifics regarding an official diagnosis of his injury, but it sounds like he could be dealing with a facial fracture after he was hit by a pitch. The surgery will more than likely carry a multi-week recovery timetable, but Motter shouldn't face any restrictions by the time hitters report to spring training. The utility man is still looking to find a new home after being released by the Twins in late August.

Twins' Taylor Motter: DFA'd by Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motter was designated for assignment by the Twins following Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Motter was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Friday but the Twins needed to make a move to clear space on the 40 and 25-man rosters for the return of Ervin Santana (finger) from the 60-day disabled list. Motter was claimed by the Twins in late May after being designated for assignment by the Mariners.

Twins' Taylor Motter: Recalled from Rochester
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motter was called up from Triple-A Rochester on Friday.

Motter has played in seven big-league games for the Twins this season, though he's failed to collect a hit in 11 plate appearances. The 28-year-old will provide additional depth all around the diamond, particularly in right field or at third base.

Twins' Taylor Motter: Returns from DL, optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motter (concussion) was activated off the 7-day concussion disabled list Friday and optioned to Triple-A Rochester, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

Motter spent the minimum seven days on the concussion DL but the Twins will opt to keep Willians Astudillo on the 25-man roster as a utility man for the time being. The 28-year-old has struggled at the plate in the majors and the minors this season, batting below the Mendoza Line at both levels.
