Veteran director of Tigers DFA to clear a spot for the return of Bryan Garcia

DETROIT – The Detroit Tigers named right-back slugger Derek Lowe for the assignment after Thursday night’s game.

Lau’s departure gives a place to right-hand man Brian Garcia, who will be picked from Triple A Toledo and will start Friday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Lau, 31, a native of Pittsburgh, was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the ninth round in 2011. He participated in parts of three major league seasons for the Giants, and also worked with the Blue Jays and the Minnesota Twins.

Lou signed a mini-league deal with the Tigers this spring and has put in impressive numbers while getting closer to Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens. In 39 innings, Law 44 crossed out and walked 10 while posting a 3.23 ERA.

But he only had two chances with the big league club, allowing five runs (he only got one) in two rounds of action. Homer surrendered three runs to Tuscar Hernandez on July 30 in Toronto in a role that spilled over due to his own mistake.

The law was previously invalidated, so he can choose to become a free agent if he clears waivers without being claimed by another team.

Garcia, 27, had an immediate start to the Tigers last week in Toronto. He allowed two runs in 3 and 2/3 runs in the Tigers’ only win over the Blue Jays.
