Renato Nunez: Let go by Detroit

Nunez was released by the Tigers on Friday. Nunez has posted solid numbers across 74 Triple-A games this season, but his success at the plate did not transfer to the big-leagues, as he slashed .189/.218/.472 across 55 plate appearances with the Tigers. The 27-year-old is still just one year removed from hitting .256/.324/.492 with 12 homers during the abbreviated 2020 season, so he should have a decent chance of landing a minor-league deal with another club.

Tigers designate Renato Nunez for assignment, reinstate Derek Hill

The Tigers have reinstated Derek Hill from the 10-day injured list. To make room on the roster, Renato Nunez was designated for assignment, per the team. Nunez joined the Tigers after being released by the Orioles in November. He’s spent most of the season in Triple-A, where he slashed .291/.383/.585 in 311 plate appearances. Despite that impressive showing, the success hasn’t translated to the bigs. Nunez has appeared in 14 games, amassing 55 plate appearances and slashing .189/.218/.472. Nunez is likely to accept an assignment back to Triple-A, as he’s done earlier this season.

Detroit Tigers OF Derek Hill returns from injury; Renato Nunez designated for assignment

TORONTO — Detroit Tigers center fielder Derek Hill is back. Needing a spark defensively and on the bases, the Tigers reinstated the 25-year-old from the injured list Saturday before the second of three games against the Toronto Blue Jays. He has been sidelined since an Aug. 10 collision in the outfield in Baltimore with fellow outfielder Akil Baddoo, who is nearing his return from concussion protocol.

Tigers' Renato Nunez: Designated for assignment

Nunez was designated for assignment by the Tigers on Saturday. Nunez had seen consistent playing time at first base recently, and he hit .231 with two home runs, a double, four RBI, two runs and eight strikeouts across his last seven games. However, he'll lose his spot on the 40-man roster after Derek Hill (ribs) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday. Jonathan Schoop will likely serve as the primary first baseman, while Willi Castro and Harold Castro are in line for increased playing time at the keystone.

Tigers' Renato Nunez: Gets breather Thursday

Nunez is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Angels. Nunez has started each of the Tigers' last six games at either first base or designated hitter, going 5-for-22 with two home runs and four RBI. Until the Tigers return Niko Goodrum (groin) from the injured list, Nunez should be fairly secure in a near-everyday role, though he'll get a breather Thursday in the series finale with Los Angeles.

Tigers' Renato Nunez: Starting again Sunday

Nunez is starting at first base and batting fifth in Sunday's game against Cleveland. After having his contract selected by the Tigers on Wednesday, Nunez will now be making his fourth straight start. He's performed well so far, going 4-for-12 with two home runs across the first three games. With Niko Goodrum (groin) and Isaac Paredes (hip) both out, Detroit has been using Jonathan Schoop regularly at second base lately, which has opened up time at first. Nunez has had some success at the MLB level, including popping 31 home runs for the Orioles in 2019, so he could offer some fantasy production while he's seeing regular starts.
