Tigers acquire Grant Witherspoon for cash from TB Rays

Immediately sent to Toledo. Not sure i understand this unless you expect the OF in Toledo to be subpar. Sure he's a cheap insurance policy but so are the guys on the MudHen roster currently.

From the Yahoo article:

"The 26-year-old hit .266 with 17 home runs, 45 walks and 112 strikeouts across 115 games last season with Double-A Montgomery (49 games) and Triple-A Durham (66 games). He hit .276 against right-handed pitchers and .237 against lefties.

Witherspoon, a left-handed hitter, also posted a 9.6% walk rate, a 23.8% strikeout rate and a .809 on-base-plus-slugging percentage, as well as stealing 15 bases in 21 attempts.

He crushed 22 home runs in 99 games with High-A Bowling Green in the 2021 season."
