Randor Bierd was the best of the three players the Tigers lost in the Rule 5 draft yesterday. Bierd could turn out to be a solid middle reliever for a big league team and while he wasn’t a huge loss, this is a guy who could have played a role with the Tigers in the next couple of years. The other two guys the Tigers were lost came in the Triple A portion of the draft. Juan Cedeno and Benjamin Fritz were the other two guys and neither look to be a major loss.
