Selected by the Atlanta Braves
Minor Leagues (2003-2012)Edit
Berry was drafted by the Atlanta Braves in the 25th round of the 2003 Major League Baseball Draft out of high school, but did not sign. He was drafted three years later in the fifth round of the 2006 Major League Baseball Draft by the Philadelphia Phillies, whom he signed with within 48 hours.
Berry played in the Phillies minor league system for 4½ seasons before being designated for assignment on July 12, 2010. He was claimed on waivers by the San Diego Padres two days later and spent the remainder of the 2010 season playing for the Double-A San Antonio Missions.
On December 10, 2010, Berry was claimed by the New York Mets from the Padres in the minor league phase of the Rule 5 draft. The Mets released Berry during spring training in 2011.
On April 21, 2011 Berry signed a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds. He spent a majority of the season playing for the Carolina Mudcats in the Double-A Eastern League. He made his Triple-A debut that same year, appearing in four games with the Louisville Bats.
Major Leagues (2012-present)Edit
Berry's contract was purchased by the Tigers on May 23, 2012, and he was added to the 25-man roster. He made his debut the same day, replacing an injured Austin Jackson in centerfield at batting leadoff. His first MLB hit came in the form of a rare bunt double.
Berry became the first Detroit Tigers player since 1918 to hit safely in his first six games as a Tiger.
