The Tigers sent Jeff Larish outright to Toledo today and he’ll be a non-roster invitee to spring training. Larish is one of those guys who mashed in the minors but has problems in the majors catching up to pitches with that long swing. I hope this isn’t Ryan Strieby’s fate (i.e. a career AAA guy) a couple of years from now because there are some similarities, outside of the fact that they’re recognizing Strieby has no where to go at first so they’ve made early plans to play him in the outfield. The move was made to make room for new closer Jose Valverde on the roster.
