    Catcher Dustin Garneau’s journey comes full circle to Detroit Tigers

    Detroit — Baseball journeys — you could never script what catcher Dustin Garneau has gone through to land in the Tigers’ starting lineup Thursday.

    On Tuesday, he was playing a Triple-A game for Albuquerque in Sugarland, Texas. He was looking forward to flying up to Las Vegas on Wednesday to see his wife and kids, whom he hadn’t seen in a month, when he got a phone call.

    You have been traded to the Tigers, he was told.

    Yeah, right, he said. Trade deadline has passed. Nice try.

    No, really. Minor league players can be traded post-deadline and the Tigers were putting catcher Eric Haase on the injured list (abdominal strain) and he needed to be in Detroit like, now.

    “Getting called up to the big leagues is always the best part,” said the 34-year-old who played parts of six seasons in the big leagues. “I haven’t seen my family in a month; that’s the frustrating part. The kids had no idea. But I am glad to be back.”
