Ex Pack star Bonine become free agent
DETROIT (AP) – The Detroit Tigers have traded minor league infielder Brent Dlugach to the Boston Red Sox for a player to be named later or cash.
The Tigers announced the move Thursday. Dlugach hit .258 with 22 doubles and six home runs at Triple-A Toledo last season.
Detroit says it also sent right-handers Eddie Bonine, who pitched one year at Nevada, and Jay Sborz, catcher Max St. Pierre and outfielder Jeff Frazier outright to Toledo.
The Tigers say Bonine refused outright assignment and elected to become a free agent. Detroit says the other three players will be granted free agency Saturday.
