Detroit Tigers fans could see more roster change in the coming days as The Detroit Free Press’ Anthony Fenech reported in a tweet that Detroit put Myles Jaye and Kyle Ryan on outright waivers.

Detroit Tigers executive vice president of baseball operations and general manager Al Avila—along with the rest of the front office—reportedly made another move on Friday.

The Tigers are in the midst of an offseason overhaul with a rebuilding effort now fully underway.

Thursday saw the team lose Andrew Romine on waivers to the Seattle Mariners.

What’s more, reliever Jeff Ferrell and outfielder Tyler Collins, Jim Adduci and Alex Presley were all outrighted off the 40-man roster.

It looks like more change is on the way, at least according to a tweet from The Detroit Free Press’ Anthony Fenech.

Fenech tweeted the following on Thursday night:

"“The Tigers have placed right-hander Myles Jaye and left-hander Kyle Ryan on outright waivers, I’m told.”"

Jaye was acquired by the Tigers from the Texas Rangers in the Bryan Holaday trade that also netted Detroit Bobby Wilson. Wilson would later be flipped back to Texas for Chad Bell.

The 25-year-old performed showed well in the upper minors for Detroit, posting a 3.63 ERA and a 1.369 WHIP and 6.7 strikeouts per nine innings in 99.1 frames for Toledo.
