By: Pat Caputo

Ryan Raburn definitely earned his release last summer from the Tigers, but if history holds, Raburn, now with the Cleveland Indians, will comeback to haunt the Tigers.

Here are three examples why.

1.Brandon Inge was released by the Tigers early last season after a horrible start and signed with Oakland. Not long afterward, he a three-run home run and a grand slam in a series vs. the Tigers at Oakland. In three games against the Tigers, Inge has eight RBI.

2. Shortstop Edgar Renteria was a disaster for the Tigers after they traded for him from the Atlanta Braves in 2008. He was allowed to leave as a free agent following the season. In 2010, he was the MVP of the World Series with the San Francisco Giants. He was joined in that triumph by other Tigers castoffs Cody Ross, Andres Torres and Audrey Huff, who allowed played prominent postseason roles the Giants.

3. Fernando Rodney is unscored upon in eight innings pitching against the Tigers. Detroit hitters are batting just .143 against him. His WHIP against the Tigers is an off the charts 0.625. He is four-of-four in save opportunities against the Tigers.
