Doug Domnarski says in this New London Day story that he will be reporting to Lakeland of the Gulf Coast League. From what I have seen from following the Connecticut Tigers, that is pretty consistent with how the Tigers handle most newly signed young players to their organization. They pretty much all end up in Lakeland of the GCL before moving on up in their minor league organization.

Domnarski signs with Detroit Tigers

Another bit of UConn baseball alumni news was buried towards the end of this article on Tim Norton. It may be a bit late in life, but another former UConn baseball player has reached the majors as a coach.

>>Now, if this story is to end right, the determination and diligence that carried Norton so close to the big leagues as a pitcher will one day land him there as a coach. That road can be longer; George Greer, an All-American at UConn in 1968, has just this summer reached the major leagues as Cardinals hitting coach at age 71.<<

George Greer has quite a history in coaching, particularly on the college level, as evidenced in these articles:

Cardinals add Budaska and Greer as New Hitting Coaches | The Cardinal Nation

George Greer Bio - Wake Forest Baseball - WakeForestSports.com

As mentioned in these articles, George Greer was the first head baseball coach at Avery Point starting in 1972. His replacement when he left was the soon to be legendary Avery Point coach Roger Bidwell.
