Anthony James Giarratano (born November 30, 1982, in Queens, New York) is a former Major League Baseball shortstop.

College career

Giarratano attended Tulane University, where he played college baseball for the Green Wave. In 2½ seasons at Tulane, Giarratano recorded a .319 batting average and drove in 111 runs. He was named a first-team freshman All-American at second base in 2001 and was a Conference USA All-Star infielder in 2003. He was also named to the All-Tournament Team in the 2001 Conference USA Tournament, which Tulane won.[1]

Professional career

Giarratano was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the third round of the 2003 amateur entry draft. He signed with Detroit on June 30 of 2003. After working his way through the Tigers minor league system, Tony made his major league debut on June 1, 2005. Giarratano appeared in 15 games for the Detroit Tigers; he recorded 6 hits, 1 home run, 4 RBIs, and had a .143 batting average in his rookie year.

Giarratano was placed on the disabled list in August of 2006 and remained on the DL for all of the 2007 season for shoulder and knee injuries. He has not appeared in a big league game since June 25, 2005. Girratano was progressing well and on target to be ready for 2008 spring training. Then, in January 2008, he reinjured his throwing shoulder leading to his release from the Tigers on January 31, 2008.[2][3]
