(DETROIT) – The Detroit Tigers on Thursday requested unconditional release waivers on utilityman Brandon Dixon so he can pursue an opportunity in Japan. Dixon led the Tigers with 15 home runs in 2019, but the 28 year old had only 13 at-bats in the majors during this year's shortened season. Those came near the end after he was called up from the alternate training site. He played for the Cincinnati Reds in 2018 before the Tigers claimed him off waivers. He has hit .228 with 20 home runs and 64 RBI's in 197 big league games.
