have traded RHP Zach Miner, a former Tiger, back to Detroit for cash considerations.

Miner will be playing for the Tigers' AA club in Erie, so it wasn't a trade meant to give the Tigers any more depth in their pitching with the top level team. No real reasons have come out from Detroit as to why the trade was made other than that.
