Some minor league moves from around the sport…

  • Former Tigers infielder Dawel Lugo will play 2020 with the expansion Mariachis of Guadalajara of the Mexican League, per Evan Woodbery of the MLive Media Group (via Twitter). The 26-year-old Lugo spent time in each of the past three seasons on the Tigers’ roster, though with just 11 plate appearances in 2020. In all, Lugo owns a .236/.270/.358 batting line, 61 wRC+, over 400 plate appearances with a 20.0 percent strikeout rate and 4.0 percent career walk rate. Lugo was signed back in 2011 by the Blue Jays as an amateur free agent out of the Dominican Republic. He was sent from Toronto to the Diamondbacks for Cliff Pennington in 2015 and then on to Detroit as part of 2017’s J.D. Martinez deal. He ranked among his organization’s top-30 prospect by Baseball America in every season from 2013 to 2019 except for 2016. Most recently, he was the Tigers’ No. 17 prospect before the 2019 season as a versatile, contact-oriented infielder with some potential for doubles power.
