Tigers signed first-round pick RHP Ryan Perry.

Perry receives a $1.48 million bonus as the 21st overall selection and could be the first 2008 draftee to reach the majors, perhaps as soon as September if the Tigers still need the bullpen help.

I've been trying to find out what team he'll start with for a while now and I still don't see where he's been assigned or if he's played yet? Anyone got any news on him starting with a team yet? I thought originally it was to be West Michigan but I have not been able to verify.

He is at the spring training complex in Lakeland, gettting back into game shape. According to a previous article, he is starting off in the GCL rookie ball... how he pitches will determine how he moves through the organization. David Chadd all but ruled out Perry pitching in the big leagues this year..
