The Tigers have sent infielder Danny Worth to the team's Triple-A affiliate in Toledo.
The move was made to make room for second baseman Omar Infante, acquired in a trade from Miami Monday night.
President and General Manager Dave Dombrowski said Infante will join the team for its series opener with the Indians Tuesday.
A transaction has been made to make room for Anibal Sanchez, the other major piece of Monday's deal. The Tigers new starting pitcher will likely replace Drew Smyly in the Tigers rotation when he pitches later this week.
The Tigers shipped Jacob Turner and a pair of prospects to Miami. Catcher Rob Brantly and pitcher Brian Flynn will join the former ninth overall pick in the deal. The teams also swapped compensatory draft picks.
