The Tigers picked up Danny Christensen from the Royals as the player to be named later in their trade of Roman Colan last summer. Christensen had a tough season last year at the Royals Double A affiliate and he doesn’t show up as even a top 20 prospect according to John Sickels so this isn’t something to get too excited about. The Tigers designated him for assignement upon getting him so he either has the choice to report to the minors or become a free agent.
Also, the Tigers couldn’t sign Kenny Rogers before the Tuesday deadline so he can now talk to any other team in the majors. It looks like a return to the Rangers is a possibility but my guess is, the Tigers give Rogers enough of what he wants to bring him back into the fold.
