Tigers Outright Collin Balester To Triple-A Toledo

On Tuesday afternoon, the Detroit Tigers announced that the club had outrighted the contract of right-handed pitcher Collin Balester to Triple-A Toledo, which means that he has officially cleared waivers after being designated for assignment on May 22 so that the Tigers could purchase the contract of outfielder Quintin Berry.

Balester, a 25-year old reliever, was 2-0 in 11 games pitched and had a 6.50 ERA with a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 12-11 in 18 innings pitched this season. He was acquired during the offseason in a trade with the Washington Nationals for another 25-year-old right-handed reliever named Ryan Perry, who has a 10.80 ERA in six-plus innings pitched this season.
