Sheffield Released By Tigers

Gary Sheffield has been released by the Detroit Tigers.  He had $14 million owed to him this season, and the Tigers are still on the hook for that.  Sheffield was often injured and unhappy during his time in Detroit, and he leaves the team just one home run shy of joining the 500 club.

The Toronto Blue Jays have come up as a possible destination for the mercurial Sheffield, but general manager J.P. Ricciardi has denied that the team has any interest in acquiring him.
