Jim Leyland on Monday resigned after eight seasons as manager of the Detroit Tigers, a stint that included three division titles and two American League pennants.

"It's been a thrill," said Leyland, 68, two days after the Tigers were eliminated from the postseason by the Boston Red Sox. "I came here to change talent to team, and I think with the help of this entire organization, I think we've done that. We've won quite a bit. I'm very grateful to have been a small part of that."

Leyland went 700-597 with the Tigers and is 1,769-1,728 for his career, which also included stints with the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Florida Marlins and the Colorado Rockies. He expects to remain with the Tigers in some capacity.

  • Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera might need surgery to repair a tear in his groin.

    Reds: Pitching coach Bryan Price will be promoted to manager, according to USA Today.

    Price attended Tamalpais High in Mill Valley before pitching at Cal from 1981-84. He holds the Cal record with 3742/3 career innings.

    Price had been pitching coach for the Reds since 2010.

    Dodgers: Los Angeles signed Cuban defector Alexander Guerrero to a four-year, $28 million contract. Guerrero, 26, projects to be a second baseman and offensive threat.

  • Matt Kemp had arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle, and the Dodgers outfielder should be ready for the start of next season.

    A-Rod update: Blocked from holding a news conference to present a person they described as a "major league baseball whistle-blower," lawyers for Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez asked that the rest of the grievance hearing to overturn his 211-game drug suspension be opened to the public.

    A source said an MLB employee had written to Rodriguez's lawyers expressing unhappiness with MLB's investigation methods.
