"Tigers Release Gary Sheffield
By Tim Dierkes [March 31 at 9:15am CST]
9:15am: More from Jon Paul Morosi of the Detroit Free Press. He says this isn't even a club record - the Tigers ate $14.3MM on Damion Easley back in '03. Morosi says Sheffield said "it ain't close" to the end of his career, and he has a preference for the Rays.
MLB.com's Todd Zolecki wonders whether the Phillies could be a fit for Sheffield.
8:41am: According to Tom Gage of the Detroit News, the Tigers released DH Gary Sheffield. They'll eat the $14MM owed to him for '09. It's quite surprising to see the team assume all that money to make him go away, especially since he's healthy right now. Plus he's just one home run shy of 500 for his career."
I dont see the Reds taking a chance even for the minimum!
