Detroit Tigers outright Don Kelly to Triple-A

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The utility man will now become a free agent.

The Detroit Tigers have outrighted the contract of utility man Don Kelly to Triple-A, making him a free agent, reports the Detroit News:

The Detroit Tigers today announced the club has outrighted the contract of infielder/outfielder Don Kelly to Triple A Toledo.

With the move, Kelly will become a free agent and be able to sign with any of the 30 major league organizations.

Kelly, 32, did everything but catch, pitch and play shortstop for Detroit in 2012, appearing in seventy-five games for the Tigers and hitting .186/.276/.248 with a single home run in one hundred twenty-seven plate appearances.

The lefty-hitting Kelly now has parts of five major league seasons under his belt – the last four coming with Detroit – and is a career .232/.283/.344 hitter. Kelly is a liability on offense, but he offers enough positive value with his glove at several positions that a bench role with another big league club is not out of the question.
