Zach Miner is back with the Detroit Tigers organization after a three-year absence.
Not much to add to this report, but have at it:
#Royals have traded RHP Zach Miner, a former Tiger, back to Detroit for cash considerations.— Bob Dutton (@Royals_Report) April 20, 2012
Miner has not appeared in a major league game since Oct. 6, 2009. (The infamous one.)
He has a 4.24 ERA across 157 games (35 starts) played between 2006-09.
I'm sure some explanation will be provided by the Tigers at some point. Maybe.
We'll update this story if there is one, but I wouldn't expect this to mean an instant invitation for Miner to join the Tigers' major league roster.
