CLEVELAND (AP) CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Detroit Tigers have bought the contract of pitcher Trevor Rosenthal from Triple-A Toledo.
The right-hander was released by the Washington Nationals last month after going 0-1 with a 22.74 ERA in 12 appearances. He allowed 16 earned runs and eight hits with 15 walks in 6 1/3 innings.
Rosenthal missed all of last season because of elbow surgery and signed with Washington in November.
Detroit signed Rosenthal to a minor league contract June 29. He had no record in six games at Toledo, allowing six runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings.
Rosenthal made the NL All-Star team in 2015 when he saved 48 games for St. Louis. He had 45 saves in 2014.
The Tigers optioned left-hander Gregory Soto to Toledo.
