The Detroit Tigers have pulled the plug on Reed Garrett’s run in the organization, returning the right-hander to the Texas Rangers, where he was selected as a Rule 5 draft pick in December. Garrett made his major league debut with the Tigers earlier this season and it has been a rough time with 13 walks in 15 1/3 innings and an 8.22 ERA in 13 appearances. The Tigers took a chance on the 26-year-old after he went 4-2 with a 2.04 ERA in Double-A and Triple-A last season and was left off the team’s 40-man roster this winter.
