The Detroit Tigers have significantly reshaped their medical department this offseason.

President of baseball operations Scott Harris didn’t renew the contract of Kevin Rand, the senior medical services director, and reassigned head athletic trainer Doug Teter to a new role at the organization’s spring training complex in Lakeland, Florida.

Now, there’s a new head athletic trainer. Ryne Eubanks, who previously served as the Arizona Diamondbacks’ assistant athletic trainer, is joining the Tigers as their athletic trainer in the major leagues. The Tigers announced his addition Tuesday.
