Tigers Designate Danny Worth For Assignment

The Tigers announced that they have designated infielder Danny Worth for assignment to clear room on the 40-man roster for right-hander Joba Chamberlain.

Worth, 28, is a career .242/.307/.315 hitter in 246 big league plate appearances. The 2007 second-rounder spent the bulk of the 2013 campaign with the Tigers' Triple-A affiliate in Toledo, batting .223/.305/.308 with a homer and nine steals in 82 games (345 plate appearances). Worth has played mostly shortstop throughout his minor league career but split his time evenly between second base, third base and shortstop this past season.
