Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - The Detroit Tigers released Alex Gonzalez on Sunday.

Gonzalez was the club's Opening Day shortstop and drove in the winning run in the ninth inning against Kansas City.

The Tigers traded for Gonzalez last month in an attempt to fill a need at the position following the loss of Jose Iglesias to injury.

Gonzalez, 37, hit just .167 (5-for-30) in nine games with Detroit.

The Tigers filled the roster spot by purchasing the contract of infielder Danny Worth from Triple-A Toledo.
