Tigers decline option on Jose Veras
Veras was acquired from the Houston Astros in a midseason trade. The right-hander went 0-5 with a 3.02 ERA in 67 appearances with the Astros and Tigers this year, but Detroit's bullpen was still a problem in the team's AL Championship Series loss to Boston.
The 33-year-old Veras receives a $150,000 buyout.
The Tigers also reinstated infielder Danny Worth from the 60-day disabled list.
