The Detroit Tigers made a roster move after their loss to the Mariners today, releasing veteran infielder Brandon Inge and recalling Brad Eldred.

Inge, who has been with the Tigers since the 2001 season, was off to a slow start, with just two hits in 20 at-bats. He was activated off the Disabled List April 14, and appeared in nine games for the Tigers, six of those at second base, a position he thought would help prolong his time in Detroit. His career slash line of .234/.304/.387 also comes with 140 career long balls.

He posted a -0.4 fWAR in 2011, spending a month in the minors, and hitting  just three home runs.  His best season came in 2009, when he hit 27 home runs and was named to his only All-Star team.

Brad Eldred, who hit 12 home runs for the Pirates back in 2005, was recalled by Detroit.  Ryan Raburn and Ramon Santiago will likely split time at second base for the time being.
