MLBTR has learned of three minor league signings:
- The Tigers signed 28-year-old lefty Phil Dumatrait, formerly of the Pirates. Dumatrait missed most of the year with a shoulder injury and was recently non-tendered when an agreement could not be reached on his minor league salary.
- First baseman Jason Stokes, 28 in January, also signed with the Tigers. He missed time in recent years due to back problems, but is healthy now.
- Righty Eric Hacker, 27 in March, signed with the Giants. This year at various Double and Triple A stops he compiled a 4.45 ERA, 6.2 K/9, and 3.5 BB/9 in 147.6 innings. The Pirates acquired Hacker in May after the Yankees designated him for assignment.
