The Tigers have designated outfielder Troy Stokes Jr. for assignment, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. The move creates 40-man roster space for outfielder Robbie Grossman, whom the Tigers signed Tuesday.
Stokes was a 2014 fourth-round pick of the Brewers who stuck with the organization until it lost him on waivers to the Tigers in September 2019. He ended his career in the Brewers’ minor league system as a .250/.351/.411 hitter with 57 home runs and 129 stolen bases over 2,355 plate appearances. Stokes made his Triple-A debut in 2019 and batted .233/.341/.385 with nine homers and 14 steals in 381 PA. He still has two minor league options remaining.
