Tom Gorzelanny clears waivers, stays with Tigers at Triple-A

Left-hander Tom Gorzelanny went unclaimed on waivers after being designated for assignment by Detroit and will remain with the Tigers at Triple-A.

Gorzelanny signed a one-year deal this offseason with plans to be a setup man for the Tigers, but they cut bait after he allowed 17 runs in 24 innings. He looked as bad as those numbers suggest, but Gorzelanny has a pretty solid track record when healthy and could find himself back in Detroit at some point.

For now the 32-year-old veteran of 11 big-league seasons will pitch for Toledo.
