    News

    Achter was released by the Tigers on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

    Impact

    It was apparently a mutual parting for the two sides, as Achter didn't perform well enough with Double-A Erie to convince the Tigers to keep him around and the right-hander likely desired joining an organization that presented an easier path to the big leagues. The 28-year-old, who compiled a 3.11 ERA over 27 appearances with the Angels last season, will look to land a minor-league deal elsewhere.
