The Tigers continued what has been an already busy offseason by designating Zach Miner for assignment on Monday:
In four years in Detroit, Miner was 25-20 with a 4.24 ERA in 157 appearances (35 starts).
The Tigers acquired Miner from the Braves at the trade deadline in 2005, in the deal for reliever Kyle Farnsworth. He was a fourth-round pick by Atlanta in 2000.
His place on the 40-man roster was taken by new catcher/designated hitter Victor Martinez.
According to Jason Beck, though, it doesn't necessarily mean we've seen the last of the mediocre right hander:
Mutual interest between #Tigers and Zach Miner on re-signing. Not a given, but nobody's saying goodbye quite yet.
Miner missed all of last season after an elbow injury forced him to undergo Tommy John surgery.
