Detroit Tigers sign three players to minor league deals


The Detroit Tigers were able to come to terms with two outfielders and a pitcher, with invitations to Spring Training.

The two outfielders are former Cleveland Indians’ Ezequiel Carrera and Trevor Crowe.

Crowe spent the first three years of his Major League with the Cleveland Indians and one year with the Houston Astros. He’s played in 265 games, had 818 at bats but only has four home runs with 68 RBI’s. The right fielder carries a batting line of .240/.294/.322 with him to his brand new club.

Carrera was teammates with Crowe in Cleveland from 2011-2013 before the Phillies claimed him off waivers on April 2nd of this year. He was designated for assignment at the end of April to make room for the then activated Delmon Young. Ezequiel has two career home runs, 26 RBI’s and a batting line of .251/.306/.339.

Last guy up is right handed pitcher Eduardo Sanchez. He made his Major League debut with the St. Louis Cardinals back in 2011. The Chicago Cubs claimed him off waivers but was later designated for assignment. He only appeared in four games for the Cubs.

Sanchez has worked 51 1/3 innings and owns a  3.68 ERA, 1.25 WHIP in his two year career.
