Tigers decline to tender contract to Daniel Schlereth

Rick Yeatts

Left-handed relief pitcher Daniel Schlereth is a free agent after the Tigers decided not to offer him a contract, according to a team announcement on Friday.

Daniel Schlereth is headed for the free agent pool after the Detroit Tigers made the decision not to offer the left-handed relief pitcher a contract before the Friday by midnight deadline, according to a report from Chris Iott of MLive.com on Friday afternoon.

Schlereth only appeared in six games during the 2012 season, allowing 14 hits and 10 runs in seven innings of work. He recorded six strikeouts and five walks in those innings, and his ERA was 10.29.

On April 28, Schlereth was placed on the disabled list with left shoulder tendinitis, according to the report, and did not appear in another game for the Tigers for the remainder of the season.

2012 was Schlereth's third season in Detroit, as the lefty posted a 4-2 overall record and 3.98 ERA in 73 total games over those three campaigns. Prior to the Tigers, Schlereth spent his first season in the majors with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, recording a 5.89 ERA and 1-4 record in 21 games for the Angels in 2009.
