DETROIT (AP) – Johnny Damon is staying in Detroit.
The Tigers outfielder says he's decided to pass up a chance to
return to the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox had claimed him on
waivers this week, and it was up to him to approve the deal.
Damon said before Tuesday night's game against Kansas City that
he's turned down the move.
The 36-year-old Damon helped lead the Red Sox to a World Series
championship 2004, their first since 1918.
