Tigers designated RHP Justin Miller for assignment.

The move was done to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for Kyle Ryan who will start the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader against the White Sox. Miller, provided he passes through waivers unclaimed, will continue to serve as additional bullpen depth in the minor leagues.

Tigers optioned RHP Justin Miller to Triple-A Toledo.

Someone had to get the ax with Anibal Sanchez returning from the disabled list on Sunday, and Miller happened to be the casualty. The 26-year-old posted a 3.48 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 5/1 K/BB ratio in 10 1/3 innings with the Tigers this season. He'll be back the next time that they need a bullpen arm.

Apr 17 - 10:20 PM

Tigers optioned RHP Justin Miller, 1B Jordan Lennerton and OF Daniel Fields to Triple-A Toledo; 3B Francisco Martinez to Double-A Erie; reassigned 2B Devon Travis to minor league camp.

Miller is the only one of the group that might have entered camp with an outside shot of landing an Opening Day roster spot. He allowed five runs -- three earned -- over his five spring innings and will now provide depth at Triple-A.

Tigers purchased the contract of RHP Justin Miller from Triple-A Toledo.
