Arizona Diamondbacks outright SS Gustavo Nunez to Detroit Tigers Triple-A team

Christian Petersen

Gustavo Nunez, who the Diamonbacks claimed off waivers in October, was returned to the Detroit Tigers.

Gustavo Nunez's time with the Arizona Diamondbacks was short lived, as the team outrighted the shortstop to the Triple-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers, the Toledo Mud Hens.

Nunez was claimed off waivers by Arizona on October 26; however, they sent him to the Tigers Friday after not wanting him to be a part of the roster.

He spent the 2012 season with the Pittsburgh Pirates, but he was sidelined for much of the year due to ankle surgery. Nunez was a Rule 5 selection by the Pirates in 2011. He was a member of the Tigers organization from 2007 until when the Pirates claimed him in the draft.

The 24-year old has spent six seasons in the minor leagues, where he has accumulated a batting average of .284 and 13 career home runs. Nunez's defense has been suspect, as he has committed more than 100 errors in his minor league career.
