Tigers Re-sign Max St-Pierre


Fox Sports’ Jon Paul Morosi is reporting that the Detroit Tigers have come to terms with veteran minor league backstop Max St-Pierre on a minor league deal.

St-Pierre has been a minor leaguer for 14 seasons, including one season where the Brewers made him a pitcher. That one season, 2007, was the only year when St-Pierre was not in the Tigers organization.

St-Pierre earned a September call-up to the big club in 2010 and appeared in six games. He batted .222 (2-for-9) including a double.

The Tigers outrighted St-Pierre’s contract last week, allowing the 30-year-old to become a free agent. Among the group of five players that were outrightred together, St-Pierre is the first to come to terms on a deal to stay with the Tigers.

In 14 minor league seasons, St-Pierre has amassed nearly 1000 games played and posted a .251/.319/.361/.680 career line. He’ll be back in Lakeland when pitchers and catchers report as a non-roster invitee, a title he has held there in virtually every Spring training since he signed in 1997.
