Mazara was released by the Tigers on Wednesday.
Mazara was designated for assignment by Detroit on Friday, but he'll hit free agency rather than joining the minor-league club. The 26-year-old has slashed .212/.276/.321 with three home runs, 19 RBI and 12 runs across 50 games this year.

Mazara missed the final two games before the All-Star break while feeling sick, and he'll open the second half of the season by getting booted off the 40-man roster. The 26-year-old signed a one-year deal, $1.75 million with the Tigers in February , but he failed to make a positive impact with a .597 OPS and below-average defense across 50 games. Mazara will clear waivers unless any teams are willing to pick up the remainder of his contract.

Even with a right-hander (Eli Morgan) on the mound for Cleveland, the lefty-hitting Mazara will cede his spot in right field to the righty-hitting Daz Cameron. Considering Mazara is on an expiring contract and has supplied a .221/.290/.351 slash line (77 wRC+) against right-handed pitching this season, the 34-44 Tigers could look to prioritize the development of longer-term assets like Cameron at his expense as the season unfolds.
