As first reported by Adam Spolane of Houston's SportsRadio 610 late Saturday night and confirmed by Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Tigers have tabbed the 44-year-old Ausmus as their new manager.

Though considered one of the favorites for the job, Ausmus has little on his on-field management resume, working in the San Diego Padres' front office as Special Assistant to Baseball Operations since retiring in 2010. His only experience in the dugout was running Israel's national baseball team in the 2013 World Baseball Classic, failing to qualify for the championship rounds.

Ausmus had an 18 season MLB career as a catcher with four different franchises, spending two tours of duty with the Tigers (1996, 1998-2000). He was the Tigers' All-Star Game representative in 1999. Ausmus spent the majority of his career with the Houston Astros, also serving time with the Padres, ending his career in 2009-2010 with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
