    Jose Valverde designated for assignment, Tui to the DL. Al-Al and Garcia called up.

    Tigers designated RHP Jose Valverde for assignment.
    Valverde pitched well initially after being called up by the Tigers in late April, but it came crashing down of late, as he blew two of five save chances while posting a 13.50 ERA over his last eight appearances. He should be able to catch on elsewhere, but his days as a closer anywhere are surely over. Joaquin Benoit has taken over as the Tigers' closer.
    Tigers placed INF/OF Matt Tuiasosopo on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 20, with a strained rib cage.
    He could be out longer than the minimum 15 days. Avisail Garcia has taken Tuiasosopo's spot on the roster.
    Tigers recalled RHP Al Alburquerque from Triple-A Toledo.
    Alburquerque continued to struggle with walks since his demotion to Triple-A, but he also continued to strike batters out at an eye-popping rate. In the majors and minors combined, the righty holds a 53/26 K/BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings this season. Manager Jim Leyland doesn't totally trust him given his control issues, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he winds up giving his big arm some high-leverage innings.
    Good riddens Jose Valturde.

    I do a happy dance ever day that I wake up and don't see him on the 25 man roster.

    But let's be honest here. He will be sent down to Toledo just like Raburn and Kelly and we all know what happens when you go to Toledo.

    It said on the fantasy report that Valverde would likely refuse to go to AAA, thus if he clears waivers he would become a free agent.

    Nobody wants him so he will have to accept it.

    Baked Potato has no leverage whatsoever...he will have to accept it. Problem only comes if the Tigers try and bring him back this season saying that he has fixed things...the fallout of that with Tigers fans will be MESSY.

    Sorry, I've been a baseball fan for about...10 years and I still don't completely understand the DFA rules. Are you guys saying he can't refuse to go to Toledo if/when he clears waivers? I agree that nobody will pick him up...I just read that he'd refuse to go back to the minors.

    Designated For Assignment

    Guys that get DFA have to sit for 10 days in limbo to see if anyteam will claim them. If no one claims him he has the option of going to the minor leagues or refusing and becoming a FA.

    So, he'll become a free agent then. Nobody will claim him and nobody will sign him.

    I disagree. No one wants him so if he wants to continue his career he will go to Toledo. DD even said he thinks Jose can help him in the future. Unfortunately, I think we see him in Detroit again this season.
