Tigers designate Evan Reed for assignment, after a month of on-field struggles

The Tigers designated right-handed reliever Evan Reed for assignment on Wednesday, after he posted an 8.38 ERA over his last 10 appearances, dating back a month.

It had more to do with those on-field issues, than the off-the-field ones. Four weeks ago, the Detroit Police Department requested a warrant from the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office in the sexual assault investigation involving Reed.

Asked if the move had any relation to the off-field problem, manager Brad Ausmus responded with: "Absolutely not."

Right-handed reliever Chad Smith was added to the roster to replace Reed.
