DETROIT -- The Tigers on Saturday announced that second baseman Devon Travis and left-hander Jose Alvarez were named the organization's Minor League Player and Pitcher of the Year.

Travis, who spent the season split between Class A West Michigan and Class A Advanced Lakeland, batted .351 with 16 home runs and 76 RBIs in 132 games. The 22-year-old, who was a 13th-round pick in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft out of Florida State, was selected for the Midwest League midseason and postseason All-Star teams.

The Tigers have chosen Travis to be one of their five representatives in the Arizona Fall League and he will begin play with the Mesa Solar Sox on Oct. 8.

Alvarez, who is now in Detroit's bullpen, went 8-6 with 115 strikeouts in 128 2/3 innings over 20 starts with Triple-A Toledo. Among International League starters, Alvarez finished second in WHIP (1.08) and fourth in ERA (2.80).
