Raburn also homered in Friday's spring opener and has connected for a homer in his three at-bats this spring, driving in five runs.
He was released by Detroit in November following a disappointing season. Raburn opened 2012 as the Tigers' starting second baseman, but batted just .171 in 66 games and was demoted to the minor leagues.
