  • Tigers' Nicholas Castellanos: Agrees to deal with Detroit

    Castellanos agreed to a one-year, $9.95 million contract with the Tigers on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Castellanos belted 23 homers and drove in 89 runs while still managing to hit for average (.298) in 157 games for Detroit in 2018. As a result, he'll receive a significant $3.9 million raise in 2019.

  • Tigers' Gregory Soto: Hit with 20-game suspension

    Soto has been suspended 20 games without pay for conduct detrimental to baseball, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    A lefty with a big fastball who turns 24 in February, Soto logged a 4.45 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 115 strikeouts in 113.1 innings at High-A last year. Per the CBA, "players may be disciplined for just cause for conduct that is materially detrimental or materially prejudicial to the best interests of baseball, including, but not limited to, engaging in conduct in violation of federal, state or local law." He will begin serving the suspension at the start of the 2019 season.

  • Tigers' Matt Boyd: Signs with Detroit

    Boyd signed a one-year, $2.6 million contract with the Tigers on Friday, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

    Boyd had a solid year with a 4.39 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 159:51 K:BB over 170.1 innings. The 27-year-old lefty was the Tigers' top starter in 2018 and is likely cemented into the rotation for 2019 with the team lacking quality starting depth.

  • Tigers' Daniel Norris: Signs with Tigers

    Norris reached a one-year, $1.275 million deal with the Tigers on Friday to avoid arbitration, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Norris missed almost four months with a groin injury and finished the season with a 5.68 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 51:19 K:BB in only eight starts. The 25-year-old has struggled over the last couple years with injury issues and inconsistency, but should be in the mix for a spot in the starting rotation come spring training.

  • Tigers' Blaine Hardy: Signs with Tigers

    Hardy signed a contract with the Tigers on Friday to avoid arbitration, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Hardy posted a solid 3.56 ERA and 1.17 WHIP with a 66:22 K:BB over 86 innings in 2018. The 31-year-old worked the first half of the season mostly as a starter but moved to the bullpen after an elbow injury in August. Hardy seems likely to fill a bullpen role in 2019 for the Tigers.

  • Tigers' Shane Greene: Signs deal with Detroit

    Greene avoided arbitration Thursday by agreeing to a one-year, $4 million contract with the Tigers, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Greene will enter spring training as the frontrunner for the closer's role, even after posting an alarming 5.12 ERA over 63.1 frames a season ago. In the event he manages to let the job slip away, he should still be in line for high-leverage innings heading into the 2019 campaign.

  • Tigers' Ronny Rodriguez: Suffers injury in winter ball

    Rodriguez has been shut down at the Dominican Winter League due to a shoulder issue, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.

    The severity of the injury is not yet clear. Rodriguez projected to enter the season as a utility man. Dawel Lugo and Brandon Dixon could benefit should he wind up not being ready to go by Opening Day.

  • Tigers' Bryan Garcia: Preparing for mound work in March

    Garcia (elbow) is approximately two months away from resuming mound work, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    After recording a 2.13 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 78 strikeouts in 55 innings between four minor-league stops in 2017, Garcia looked like someone who could be a difference maker for the Detroit bullpen heading into 2018. That never came to pass, however, as the right-hander experienced pain early in spring training and underwent season-ending Tommy John surgery Feb. 16. Now almost 11 months removed from the procedure, Garcia is nearing the finish line in his recovery but may be limited for much of the upcoming spring. Once the Tigers are comfortable with his health, expect him to report to Triple-A Toledo, where he'll look to rediscover the form that once made him a potential closer in waiting for the big club.

  • Tigers' Nick Ramirez: Agrees to deal with Tigers

    Ramirez signed a minor-league contract with Detroit.

    The converted first baseman couldn't duplicate his Double-A numbers at the Triple-A level in 2018, logging a 5.73 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 18:21 K:BB over 37.2 innings with Colorado Springs in the Brewers' system last season. Ramirez spent most of his time coming out of the bullpen, which is where he's likely going to be utilized by the Tigers next year. Don't expect to see the 29-year-old in the majors barring a dramatic improvement.

  • Tigers' Michael Fulmer: On track for spring training

    General manager Al Avila said last week that Fulmer has regained full range of motion in his surgically repaired right knee and remains on track to be ready for the start of spring training, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    A report earlier this month suggested that Fulmer was slightly behind in his recovery from surgery to address a damaged meniscus and frayed cartilage, but Avila's comments paint a rosier picture of the right-hander's recovery. Fulmer will presumably test out the health of his knee in workouts later this winter, and if he gets the green light from his surgeon, Dr. James Andrews, the 25-year-old should report to spring training without any limitations.
