The Tigers sent rule five selection Edward Campusano back to the Chicago Cubs. Campusano cleared waivers and will be assigned to Des Moines.
Campusano was acquired by Milwaukee who then traded him to the Tigers. He had a shot to make the team as a lefty reliever before he found himself on Dr. James Andrews operating table.
Campusano was on the 60 day DL te whole season so for the club to retain him a spot on the 40 man roster would need to be cleared.
Taking Campusano wasn’t a bad move, but retaining him for a full season meant that the Tigers paid him the league minimum plus some medical bills.
