DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Tigers are ready to move on without backup catcher Brayan Pena.
A team spokesman says Pena's agent reached out to the Tigers, and the team said at this point it is looking in a different direction.
Pena signed a one-year deal with Detroit before the 2013 season. He hit .297 with four home runs in 71 games as the primary backup to Alex Avila. The 31-year-old Pena has also played for the Kansas City Royals and Atlanta Braves.
The Tigers also have 25-year-old Bryan Holaday in their system. He started eight games behind the plate this year for Detroit.
