The Tigers owed Inge $5.5 million for 2012 and $500,000 to buy out his contract for 2013, which called for him to be paid $6 million. If the Athletics sign Inge, they will owe him the pro-rated portion of the minimum salary of $480,000. Inge was released by the Tigers on Thursday. The Tigers play a four-game series in Oakland beginning May 10.
