Tigers return Jeff Kobernus to Nationals

LAKELAND, Fla. - Despite an decently impressive spring, Jeff Kobernus is headed back to the Washington Nationals.

The Detroit Tigers announced Saturday they are sending the Rule 5 pick back to the Nationals.

After hitting .220 with Detroit throughout camp, Kobernus will be returned to his former team as part of the rules from the MLB's Rule 5 Draft.

Matt Tuiasosopo appears the favorite to win the team's fourth outfielder spot after impressing the past two weeks.
