The Tigers previously announced plans to part ways with the 33-year-old Renteria, who hit .270 with 10 homers and 55 RBIs this season.

Detroit acquired the five-time All-Star and two-time Gold Glove shortstop shortly after the 2007 season from Atlanta for pitcher Jair Jurrjens and outfielder Gorkys Hernandez.

Detroit also rehired bullpen coach Jeff Jones, promoted Bruce Tanner to major league scout and outrighted the contracts of pitcher Gary Glover and catcher Dane Sardinha to Toledo.
