Taylor Motter has been placed on waivers by the Kiwoom Heroes of the Korea Baseball Organization.
Motter signed with the Heroes back in December, but really struggled during his time with the club with a .114/.135/.200 batting line over 37 plate appearances. He was even demoted to the minors for a time amid some drama on social media. Teams now have seven days to claim him. He would become a free agent after that, but wouldn't be eligible to play for another KBO team this season. May 30 1:37 pm (EST)
- The Athletics purchased Motter's contract from the New Britain Bees of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball on Tuesday and assigned him to Double-A Midland.
- Motter was released by the Tigers on Tuesday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.
- The Tigers signed Motter (face) to a minor-league contract Wednesday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. All Taylor Motter (R) News
