Loney has played mostly for the Los Angeles Dodgers, but also for the Boston Red Sox, Tampa Bay Rays and, most recently, the New York Mets.He’s a career .284/.336/.410 hitter, with 108 career home runs.Last year, he hit .265/.307/.397 with nine homers and 34 RBIs in 100 games with the Mets.The 33-year-old went to spring training with the Rangers and spent about a month in the Tigers organization before his release last week.When he reaches the majors, Loney will likely platoon with Jace Peterson at first base.The veteran first baseman hit just .200/.351/.222 over 57 plate appearances with Triple-A Toledo.The Tigers needed a roster spot at Triple-A for Ja Coby Jones to begin his rehab assignment and the 33-year-old Loney was the odd-man out.The 32-year-old is doubtful to make a meaningful impact with Detroit, though he could become the club's best option at first base if Miguel Cabrera's back issue continues to linger.The 32-year-old is doubtful to make a meaningful impact with Detroit, though he could become the club's best option at first base if Miguel Cabrera's back issue continues to linger.
