Quentin Berry optioned to Triple-A Toledo by Tigers

Tigers send Berry to Triple-A Toledo

LAKELAND, Fla. — Outfielder Quintin Berry has been optioned to Triple-A Toledo by the Detroit Tigers, who said Don Kelly had made their opening-day roster.

Berry was a contender for left field but was sidelined for much of spring by patellar tendinitis. He hit .258 in 94 games for the Tigers last season and led the team with 21 stolen bases.

His demotion Wednesday leaves Andy Dirks and Matt Tuiasosopo as the Tigers’ left fielders.

U-M schedules Cincy in two sports

ANN ARBOR— Michigan and Cincinnati have agreed to play each other for football and basketball over the next decade.

Michigan said Wednesday that the Wolverines and Bearcats will play a football game at the Big House in 2017. The two men’s basketball programs will play during the 2015-16 and 2018-19 seasons on dates and in arenas to be determined later.

Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon says the Wolverines recruit the Cincinnati area heavily in all sports.

The Wolverines and Bearcats have not faced each other in football and have played four basketball games.

Spievey arrested in domestic dispute

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. — Police say Detroit Lions safety Amari Spievey has been arrested in his Connecticut hometown after a child support dispute.

The Middletown Press reports Wednesday the 24-year-old Spievey was arrested Tuesday on charges of third-degree assault, risk of injury to a child and disorderly conduct. His girlfriend, 26-year-old Lisamarie Santos, also was charged with risk of injury and disorderly conduct.

Santos told police Spievey pushed her and put his hand on her neck when they argued. Spievey said he pushed Santos after she grabbed his throat and punched his chest while he held their 2-year-old daughter.

They were to appear in court Wednesday. It’s not immediately known who is representing them.

The Lions said they had no immediate comment. Spievey has played three seasons for Detroit, which drafted him in 2010.
