The White Sox have traded outfielder Jake Marisnick to the Tigers in exchange for cash considerations, the division rival announced earlier Tuesday afternoon.
The move comes shortly after Marisnick was designated for assignment following the addition of Clint Frazier to the major league squad. The 32-year-old cleared waivers and accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Charlotte on May 26.
Marisnick originally signed a minor league deal with the White Sox this past winter and was added to the MLB squad earlier this month. He was primarily utilized as a defensive replacement, finishing his South Side stint 0-for-2 with a run scored in nine games this season.
The veteran has spent the majority of his major league career with the Houston Astros. Since his departure from the team after the 2019 season, Marisnick has played with the Mets (2020), Cubs (2021), Padres (2021), and Pirates (2022).
Following today’s trade, the Tigers assigned Marisnick to the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens.
