Tigers release Ryan Raburn after .171 season

Raburn was released following a nightmare of a 2012 season that saw a 31-year-old infielder / outfielder endure numbers almost grotesque: .171 batting average in 66 games, with one home run, 12 RBIs, an on-base average of .226 and an OPS on-base plus slugging percentage of .480.

It was supposed to have been a different year, and a different departure, for Raburn, who has been in the Tigers organization since he was signed out of Durant High School, in Durant, Fla., in 2001.

Raburn’s release came as part of a slight 40-man roster re-shuffling by the Tigers. They added a pair of young relievers, Bruce Rondon and Melvin Mercedes, as well as shortstop Dixon Machado. (Detroit News)
