Rincon declines Tigers assignment
Juan Rincon’s agent, Ed Setlik, said Friday that his agent will decline the Tigers’ assignment to Triple-A Toledo and become a free agent
should he pass through waivers unclaimed. The Tigers designated Rincon for assignment Tuesday to make room for Dontrelle Willis on the roster. Teams had until Friday to claim him.
The 30-year-old right-handed reliever gave up six runs on 12 hits over 10 1/3 innings this season after making the team as a non-roster invitee.
No word yet on which teams might have interest. Setlik said they probably won’t start talking with other clubs until Monday.
