“On behalf of ownership and the Detroit Tigers organization, we’re thrilled Alan Trammell has returned to the ballclub,” said Tigers President, CEO and General Manager David Dombrowski. “’Tram’ will forever be revered as one of the greatest Tigers to ever wear the olde English ‘D’ and we view this as an opportunity to add an outstanding baseball person who offers a wealth of experience and perspective from his 20 plus seasons, all with the Tigers, and his most recent years of managing and coaching in the Majors.”

For the last seve seasons, Trammel has served as the bench coach for the Diamondbacks and Cubs.
