Tigers | Options in LF include Andy Dirks, Brennan Boesch

Detroit Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski indicated that he doesn't think OFs Avisail Garcia and Nick Castellanos are capable of being part-time players to platoon with OF Andy Dirks in left field. "With Garcia and Castellanos, and I'll put them both in the same boat Garcia the better outfielder, Castellanos is going to be a quality hitter," Dombrowski said. "They're not going to come up and only play 30 or 40 games for us at this time." Dirks hit incredibly well against right-handers last year, and he wasn't bad against lefties, either, hitting .274 against them. OF Brennan Boesch, Quintin Berry and Don Kelly all hit left-handed like Dirks. However, Dombrowski said Boesch still has a shot to win the starting job from Dirks in spring training.
