Tigers designated INF Dixon Machado for assignment.

Joe Nathan will take Machado's spot on the 40-man roster. The 21-year-old provides solid defense at the shortstop position, but he owns a meager .222/.301/.271 batting line over his first five pro seasons.

Tigers purchased the contract of INF Dixon Machado from High-A Lakeland.

Machado, who turns 21 in February, batted just .195/.283/.252 with two homers and a .534 OPS in 119 games this season at the High-A level. However, with his excellent defense, plate discipline and speed, it's possible someone would have snagged him in the Rule 5 Draft if he was exposed.
