Tigers sign Timo Perez/Bobby Seay to minor-league contracts

Postby Dannomyte » Sat Jan 06, 2007 10:52 am

The Tigers have signed two players – outfielder Timo Perez and left-handed pitcher Bobby Seay – to minor-league contracts that include invitations to spring training. Both would earn $450,000 if they spent all of 2007 in the majors.

Perez, a left-handed hitting outfielder, is a career .262 hitter in seven big-league seasons. He batted .194 in 23 games for the St. Louis Cardinals last year, but didn’t appear in the playoffs. He won a World Series ring with the Chicago White Sox in 2005.

Perez effectively replaces outfielder Alexis Gomez, who signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Colorado Rockies this week.

Seay spent 2006 in the Detroit organization. He appeared in 14 games with the Tigers (0-0, 6.46 ERA) before Wil Ledezma replaced him in the bullpen. He then went 1-2 with a 4.74 ERA in 24 appearances at Triple-A Toledo.

I'm suprised to see Seay back because he wasn't very happy when the Tigers sent him down last year. I'm guessing he didn't have many options.

Timo = an older, possibly not quite as good version of Alexis Gomez

Let's just hope we don't get to the point of needing Timo or Seay and they simply remain AAA filler.
