– Zach Miner has been designated for assignment. Assuming he clears (I’m sure he will), he’ll be a free agent on Friday. But the Tigers are likely to bring him back. He’s been a great spot starter and will be a good long man starting off in 2011. Good info on the rationale for taking Miner off of the 40 man in lieu of a minor leaguer in yesterday’s Freep.
– Expect the Tigers to offer contracts to Armando Galarraga and Joel Zumaya before Thursday’s deadline. According to one source, 2011 is make it or break it for Zoom.
