According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, Fu-Te Ni has agreed to a contract with the Lancaster Barnstormers of the independent Atlantic League.
Ni signed with the Tigers out of Taiwan in 2009 but flamed out after posting a 4.33 over his first 58 major league relief appearances. The 31-year-old lefty is hoping to break back into MLB-affiliated ball at some point. Mon, May 5, 2014 02:47:00 PM

Dodgers signed LHP Fu-Te Ni to a minor league contract.

The 31-year-old southpaw hasn't appeared in the major leagues since he was with the Tigers in 2010. He'll function merely as organizational depth for the Dodgers.

Tigers released LHP Fu-Te Ni.

Ni has been limited to just five starts and two relief appearances this season with Triple-A Toledo due to shoulder issues. The 29-year-old southpaw made 58 relief appearances for the Tigers from 2009-2010.

Tigers reassigned LHP Fu-Te Ni and C Max St. Pierre to minor league camp.

Ni allowed only four hits and one earned run in 10 innings of work this spring in big league camp and should be one of the first minor league relievers on the Tigers' call-up list. The lefty is ready for big league ball.

Fu-Te Ni has earned increased attention as a potential addition to the Tigers' bullpen.

"He's had a very good spring, quietly," said manager Jim Leyland, "and we're watching him closely." Ni followed up a moderately successful 2009 season with a very poor 2010. In the past, he has shown the ability to pitch at the major league level, but is attempting to put last year's difficulties behind him.

Tigers sent LHP Fu-Te Ni outright to Triple-A Toledo.

The Tigers still have the rights to the Tawianese lefty, but have moved him off the 40-man roster and may keep him in the minor leagues for all of 2011. He posted a 6.65 ERA and 2.00 WHIP in 23 innings this year.

Tigers optioned LHP Fu-Te Ni to Triple-A Toledo.

Ni allowed two hits, three walks and four earned runs on Tuesday in mop-up duty against the Twins. He does not belong in the big leagues at the moment.

Tigers purchased the contract of LHP Fu-Te Ni from Triple-A Toledo.

Ni will jump right into the Tigers' bullpen, and should be available Sunday. The 26-year-old sidearmer had a 3.34 ERA and 132 strikeouts in 145 1/3 innings for his club in Taiwan last season.

Tigers signed LHP Fu-Te Ni to a minor league contract and invited him to spring training.

An agreement was reached last month, but the Tigers announced it today. Ni, 26, went 5-12 with a 3.34 ERA and a league-leading 132 strikeouts in 145 1/3 innings for his team in Taiwan last season. The sidearmer is highly unlikely to make it as a starter in the majors, but perhaps he could have some success in the bullpen.
