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
