27-Year-Old CatcherC
Detroit Tigers
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Sands made his big-league debut at age 26 last season but didn't stick around long enough to make an impression, going 0-for-3 with a walk. He hit a strong .308/.413/.428 in 57 Triple-A games, suggesting he has some potential at the plate, especially considering the low offensive bar at catcher. After being acquired by the Tigers from the Phillies, he'll compete with Jake Rogers and Andrew Knapp in spring training to earn the backup catcher job behind Eric Haase. Read Past Outlooks
$Traded to the Tigers in January of 2023.
Optioned to Toledo
CDetroit Tigers  AAA
March 24, 2023
The Tigers optioned Sands to Triple-A Toledo on Friday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
ANALYSIS
Sands slashed just .214/.241/.250 over 29 plate appearances this spring, so he will return to Triple-A and attempt to right himself in the minors. If he can replicate his .841 OPS in Triple-A from last season, he has a decent shot at returning to the big leagues at some point in 2023.
