The Tigers announced today that infielder/outfielder Brandon Dixon has been outrighted to Triple-A. He cleared waivers after recently being designated for assignment.
Dixon, who’ll turn 28 later this month, got a lengthy look in 2019 in Detroit but wasn’t able to take advantage. Over 420 plate appearances, he hit 15 home runs and slashed just .248/.290/.435. If he’s to carve out a career in the majors, the former third-round pick will have to improve upon his strikeout (32.4%) and walk (5.0%) rates.
