Tigers Sign Casey Fien To A Minor League Deal

It's back to where it all started for Casey Fien, who has signed a minor league deal with the Tigers according to MLB.com's Jason Beck

The 26-year-old has been a transactions all-star this past month. Detroit designated him for assignment back in February, and the Red Sox claimed him off waivers a few days after. Boston waived him a few days later, and the Blue Jays claimed him. Toronto then released him this past Thursday.

Fien posted a 3.41 ERA, 10.2 K/9, and 2.3 BB/9 in 58 Triple A relief innings this year, though he struggled in 11.1 big league innings, his first taste of the show.

This is ending up just like Groundhog Day…. Is Fien related to Punxsutawney Phil or something?

interesting. I thought Casey Fein didn’t do that bad in the Tigers system.

This whole thing with Fien has gotten very strange. I wonder what is so wrong with him that he’s been tossed around like a hot potato. There are many other guys with much worse numbers then him; I guess his mechanics, or other things we can’t understand through stats, are really bad. I hope he sticks on with the Tigers now! Not that I think he’s got a ton of major league promise, it’s just that it seems he is one of the better minor leaguers, so it’s strange that he’s being picked on to move back and forth through all these teams.

Pretty much agree with everything you said. I don’t know what the deal is either. If the Tigers are signing him again, maybe they thought they made a mistake or they just needed the room or something.

Poor Casey. Everyone likes him but nobody loves him.

Ahh yes, it figures…I look at my backyard team the Binghamton Mets schedule and Harrisburg does not come to town until early August because of the new scheduling they do in the Eastern league. Ugh. Bummer. Highly doubt he’s still in AA then. Was hoping to get a glimpse of this kid up close and personal. Cripes, I remember when Harrisburg visited here once a month as it’s once of Binghamton’s closest Eastern League cities.
