Detroit Tigers release struggling closer Francisco Rodriguez

The Tiger opted today to release Rodriguez, who had continued to struggle after losing the closer’s job to Justin Wilson. The Tigers announced this afternoon they have recalled right-handed pitcher Bruce Rondon from Triple-A Toledo.

The Tigers also announced that outfielder Alex Presley has been placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list and they have selected the contract of outfielder Matt den Dekker from Toledo.

Rodriguez questioned the communication skills of manager Brad Ausmus and pitching coach Rich Dubee last week. Rodriguez declined to talk to reporters after the giving up a grand slam in a 9-6 loss to the Mariners in Seattle on Thursday.
