Don Kelly Will Not Opt Out Of Contract With Tigers

Left-handed-hitting utility man Don Kelly will not excercise the opt-out clause in his contract, reports's Jason Beck. While he could have done so today, Kelly instead will stick with the club on "an informal agreement." As Beck explains it: "if Kelly doesn't make the Opening Day roster, team president/general manager Dave Dombrowski will try to find Kelly another team with a big-league job for him." Failing that, "Kelly will accept an assignment to Triple-A Toledo."
