The Detroit Tigers released utility player Ryan Raburn on Tuesday. Detroit also outrighted right-handed pitcher Tyler Stohr to Triple-A Toledo.

The Tigers selected Raburn in the fifth round of the 2001 MLB Draft. He made his MLB debut with Detroit in 2004, but did not play in the majors again until 2007. Last season he played in 66 games for the Tigers and hit .171 with one home run, 12 RBIs, 14 runs and 53 strikeouts. He played second base, left field, right field, and designated hitter during the 2012 season. Raburn, 31, played in over 100 games with the Tigers in each of the 2009-2011 seasons.

Stohr, 26, was drafted by the Tigers in the sixth round of the 2008 MLB Draft and has yet to make his major league debut. He spent the 2012 season with Double-A Erie where he had a 2.19 ERA in 23 games with a 2-1 record and one save.
