Javier Baez homers as Tigers beat White Sox for 5th straight win
Baez homered and Beau Brieske tossed a no-hitter through five innings as the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox 2-1 in the series opener Thursday night at Guaranteed Rate Field. They have three more this weekend against the White Sox (39-42). Through five innings, Brieske had allowed only a walk to Sox second baseman Josh Harrison, a former Tiger.

3 former Tigers infielders sign with new teams Saturday
LAKELAND, Fla. -- Three former Detroit Tigers infielders, including recent utility man Niko Goodrum, signed with new clubs amid a flurry of moves on Saturday night. Goodrum, who spent the last four seasons with the Tigers, signed a one-year, $2.1 million deal with the Houston Astros, according to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman. He would have made around $3 million in arbitration if the Tigers had extended him a contract. Over the next four seasons, Goodrum played regularly at second and shortstop while serving at times as a super-utility player. Shortstop Jose Iglesias, who played for the Tigers from 2013-2018, signed a one-year deal with the Colorado Rockies.mlive.com

Ex-Tigers infielder already has MLB deal for 2021
Here’s something you might not have expected after Josh Harrison’s brief wash-out as the Detroit Tigers' everyday second baseman in 2019. Harrison, now 33, is not only still in baseball, but he’s already signed a Major League contract for the 2021 season. The Nationals announced Thursday that they had signed Harrison, who will likely serve as a utility man for the club in 2021. He’d been on Mike Rizzo’s radar for a while before this season, then quickly became a valued utility man/clubhouse guy in the shortened season. Rather than find a spot for him on the Major League roster, the Tigers opted to release him in August.mlive.com
