Tigers Decline Anibal Sanchez’s Option, Outright Four Players.
MLBTR

Andrew Romine played all nine positions in what turned out to be his final game as a Detroit Tiger.

The veteran utility man was claimed by the Seattle Mariners on Thursday after being placed on waivers by the Tigers.

The Tigers waived four others players who went unclaimed and were then outrighted to the minor leagues: pitcher Jeff Ferrell; and outfielders Alex Presley, Jim Adduci and Tyler Collins.

The three outfielders are all eligible to become free agents because they have been outrighted previously. They could re-sign with the Tigers if they so choose.

The Tigers also formally declined the 2018 option on pitcher Anibal Sanchez.

They now have six open spots available on the 40-man roster. One spot will go to Victor Martinez, who must be transferred back to the roster from the 60-day disabled list. The other five can be used to protect players from next month's Rule 5 Draft.

Romine was due to make an estimated $1.9 million in arbitration in 2018, which is one reason he was expendable. Presley was due an estimated $1.1 million.

Romine, 31, was traded to the Tigers from the Angels in 2014 in exchange for left-handed reliever Jose Alvarez.

He quickly became a jack-of-all trades utility man, a role he held for four seasons and 435 games as a Detroit. Romine hit .236 with 10 home runs during his tenure, but his real value came in his versatility. Romine didn't just dabble at all positions; he was actually very good at seven of them (while also serving as an emergency catcher and pitcher).

He made history by playing all nine positions in the Tigers' second-to-last game of the season on Sept. 30 at Minnesota.

"(Romine) has always kind of been a role player, whether it's coming in on defense, giving a starter a day off, pinch-running," manager Brad Ausmus said at the time. "He rarely gets the spotlight....This can put him in the record books somewhere."

Presley, 32, was a pleasant surprise for the Tigers in 2017, hitting .314 with a .770 OPS in 71 games. The left-hander can play all three outfield positions and could be an option to return on a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training.

Adduci, also 32, hit .241 in 29 games with the Tigers, providing a brief offensive spark when he joined the team in late April. He battled injuries for part of the year and finished the season in Triple-A.

Collins, 27, won an Opening Day job but was designated for assignment on May 28 after struggling with strikeouts. He cleared waivers and was outrighted to the minor leagues, where he remained until getting a surprise promotion to Detroit in September.

He'll likely seek a fresh start elsewhere after .235 with a .680 OPS in 183 games over four seasons with the Tigers.

Ferrell, 26, has had two brief stints with the Tigers in 2015 and last year. In September, he was sidelined after getting hit in the head by a line drive. The Tigers retain the rights to Ferrell, who could potentially get an invitiation to spring training and pitch again in Toledo in 2018.

Detroit Tigers must follow Houston Astros' formula for championship.
