Tigers re-sign Casey Fien
The Tigers announced Saturday morning that they’ve re-signed Casey Fien to a minor-league contract, three weeks and two teams after they designated him for assignment to make room for Johnny Damon on the roster.
You might recall that the Tigers designated Fien Feb. 23 after signing Damon. Fien worked out in the Tigers minor league camp for the next week or so while he waited to see whether anyone claimed him on waivers. The Red Sox did on March 1, but no sooner did Fien report to their big league camp than the Red Sox tried to get him through waivers. The Blue Jays then claimed him March 4, and Fien headed back up I-75 to report to camp with them. Then Toronto released him on Thursday.
Fien will now report back to the Tigers’ minor league camp.
