Tigers re-sign Brad Davis to minor-league contract

Davis should end up in Toledo where he'll be the Mud Hens primary catcher.

The Detroit Tigers have added a little catching depth, re-signing Brad Davis to a minor league contract. The 29 year old catcher was signed by the Tigers in July as a free agent after the Tigers sent Rob Brantly to the Miami Marlins for Omar Infante and Anibal Sanchez.

Davis spent last season making his rounds through Major League Baseball. He started the season in the San Diego Padres minor league system where he hit just .155 in 33 games before being cut in June. Davis then signed with the Marlins, the team that drafted him, where he hit .067 in seven games before being released again. He faired much better in the Detroit minor league system where he .327 in 15 games the rest of the season.

Davis is likely heading to the Tigers Triple-A affiliate, the Toledo Mud Hens. The Tigers are well positioned with Bryan Holaday backing up Alex Avila at the major league level.
