The Tigers have re-signed catcher Max St. Pierre to a minor league contract, two major league sources told FOXSports.com.
St. Pierre reached the majors this year as a 30-year-old rookie. He batted .222 in six games, after a minor league career that spanned 14 seasons and nearly 1,000 games.
Detroit outrighted St. Pierre to the minors last week, enabling him to become a free agent.
The Tigers have only one catcher on their 40-man roster – 23-year-old Alex Avila, a career .237 hitter in the big leagues. They will add at least one major league player at the position before Opening Day.
