Tigers signed LHP James Russell to a minor league contract.
Russell spent the 2017 season with Leones de Yucatan in the Mexican League and then the Texas Airhogs of the independent Atlantic League. He was a very effective major league reliever from 2012-2014 and the 32-year-old lefty could get another shot at the MLB level this season with the rebuilding Tigers, though he is doubtful to make the Opening Day roster.
