Casey Fien struck out two in a perfect inning of relief Tuesday against the Braves.

The 28-year-old right-hander has a 4.19 ERA over 11 appearances. After getting pounded in limited run for the Tigers between 2009-2010, Fien has rejuvenated his career up north, posting a stingy 2.87 ERA and 1.01 WHIP over 56 games since the Twins called him up on the Fourth of July, 2012.

Twins purchased the contract of RHP Casey Fien from Triple-A Rochester.

He'll take the roster spot of Nick Blackburn, who was demoted to the minors. Fien signed a minor league deal with the Twins over the winter and had a 4.30 ERA and 42/14 K/BB ratio over 46 innings at the Triple-A level. The 28-year-old right-hander hasn't appeared in the big leagues since 2010 as a member of the division rival Tigers.

Twins signed RHP Casey Fien to a minor league contract.

He'll also get an invite to spring training. Fien was released by the Astros last June after compiling a 4.81 ERA and 24/8 K/BB ratio over 24 1/3 innings with Triple-A Oklahoma City. The 28-year-old right-hander has an 8.36 ERA in 11 big league appearances, all with the Tigers. He'll likely serve as organizational depth in 2012.

Fien held a 24/8 K/BB ratio over 24 1/3 innings but also posted a 4.81 ERA and 1.48 WHIP. He might shut things down for the year and try to latch on with another organization over the offseason.

Astros signed RHP Casey Fien to a minor league contract.

Fien, 27, posted a 2.60 ERA and 44/13 K/BB ratio over 62 1/3 innings with Triple-A Toledo this season. He continues to put up good numbers in the minors, but it hasn't translated to success in the majors quite yet. Fien has an 8.36 ERA and 9/6 K/BB ratio in 11 big league appearances.

Tigers recalled RHP Casey Fien from Triple-A Toledo.

Hopefully Fien, 26, will get more of an opportunity to prove his worth this time around. He pitched two scoreless innings for the Tigers when he was in the majors last and he's a fairly promising young reliever.

Tigers signed RHP Casey Fien to a minor league deal.

No, we're not running reruns, Fien really has returned to Detroit. He was designated for assignment by the Tigers to clear a roster spot for Johnny Damon and claimed by the Red Sox, released by the Sox and claimed by the Blue Jays, released by the Jays and now back to the Tigers.
Sat, Mar 20, 2010 10:33:00 AM

Blue Jays released RHP Casey Fien.

He just can't find a home. Fien was claimed off waivers from the Red Sox earlier this month. This, after Boston claimed him off waivers from the Tigers only days earlier. Still, with a 3.04 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 153 minor league relief appearances, expect someone to snatch him up pretty quickly.
