Dotel's save earns him spot in MLB history
DETROIT -- If there's one snapshot of Octavio Dotel's well-traveled career, it was in the Tigers' clubhouse Wednesday: Jerseys from all 13 of his Major League stops were hanging in his locker, unpacked from a box by fellow reliever Joaquin Benoit.

Dotel's 13 teams are a Major League record. He took his share of another record when he collected the save in Tuesday's win over the White Sox, making the Tigers the ninth team for which he has collected a save.

According to Elias Sports Bureau, Dotel is tied with Hall of Famer Goose Gossage for the Major League mark. Dotel had been tied for second place with Lee Smith.

Seven relievers are tied for fourth on the list with seven teams, including former Tiger Todd Jones.
