It was a quiet weekend for the Tigers. I was out of town with friends and one of them thought he saw Alex Gonzalez had signed with the Tigers. It made no sense, but we waited 20 minutes for the ESPN ticker to get all of the way back through each college football score to find that Gonzalez had actually signed with the Reds.
The Tigers did sign seven minor league players on Friday. Craig Dingman, Mike Hessman, Kevin Hooper, Vic Darensbourg, Jackson Melian, Tim Byrdak and Steve Torrealba. Jason Beck runs down this list with bios so be sure to check out his column. Billfer also talks about the signings.
