Always a Tiger: Ex-Tigers Currently in the Minors

If you watch MLB Network or ESPN’s Baseball Tonight, it’s easy to keep up with the adventures of ex-Tigers like Curtis Granderson, Brandon Inge, Edwin Jackson, or whoever. But you won’t see the Tigers of yesteryear that are still active in the game, yet in the minors somewhere.

These are the guys that fascinate me. Some of these guys have made millions and don’t need to play anymore. Some, it’s all they know, so they keep doing it. And some just love the game. I’m a sucker for this stuff.

So, take a look at this group of players that I found in the minors currently. I’m sure you’ll come across a name you either forgot about or had no idea they were still playing somewhere. (Note: Yes, I know a couple have been promoted, but I thought I’d include their minor league numbers anyway.)
