DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Tigers say infielder Josh Wilson has been sent outright to the minors and he has elected to become a free agent.

The 34-year-old played 21 games for the Tigers in 2015, hitting .316. Since 2005, he's played 431 major league games for nine different teams.

Detroit general manager Al Avila said last week that Wilson would not remain on the roster.
