Tigers Designate Casey Fien For Assignment

The Tigers designated righty Casey Fien for assignment to make room for Johnny Damon, according to the team's Twitter page.  Fien, 26, posted a 3.41 ERA, 10.2 K/9, and 2.3 BB/9 in 58 Triple A relief innings this year.  He struggled in 11.3 big league frames, which marked his Major League debut.  Baseball America ranked Fien 27th among Tigers prospects, writing that he "profiles as a middle reliever."  Still, his minor league command is intriguing.
