Not that it’s a surprise, but it’s pretty much official now. Casey said this morning that Jim Leyland and Dave Dombrowski told him in a meeting Saturday that he would not be re-signed. There’s no such news yet on whether the Tigers will pick up Pudge’s option. Leyland met with him Saturday, too, but neither the manager nor the catcher will discuss what was said other than Pudge indicating it did not involve his option.
