It looks like one at bat was enough. Clete didn’t make himself available for comment, but after belting a double in his only major league at bat, the young outfielder has announced his retirement. He’ll end his career with an impressive 1.000/1.000/2.000 line but now it looks like the Tigers will have to move on after the announcement.
My guess is, Timo Perez will get called up to take Thomas’ spot. Brent Clevlen is also an option as well as Freddy Guzman. It’s a strange start to a strange day so be sure to mark your calendar (no really, mark your calendar).
