Preston Larrison had his contract outrighted to Toledo today. He’ll be a non-roster invitee to the major league camp. Larrison was designated for assignment last week to make way for Yorman Bazardo.

As Brian wrote Larrison was out of options. He was a longshot to make the club which meant the Tigers would have had to go through this exercise sooner or later anyways. By getting it done now, it may have increased the team’s chances of keeping him. If he’s a late season cut maybe someone looking for help takes a flyer on him.
