The Tigers continued their busy few days by increasing their outfield depth.
The Detroit Tigers PR account just tweeted that the team has agreed to a minor-league deal with recently released J.D. Martinez. The 26-year old outfielder has already reported to minor-league camp in Florida.
The Houston Astros released Martinez last week, claiming that there was no spot for him in their outfield, a problem that general manager Jeff Luhnow says makes the team a “victim of our own success.”
In three seasons with the Astros, Martinez has hit .251/.300/.387 as a backup corner outfielder.
