Tigers | Alex Gonzalez released

The Detroit Tigers have released SS Alex Gonzalez. "We need to have a little more range defensively at shortstop," general manager Dave Dombrowski said. "We just didn't see it there and didn't see it getting better so we figured it was time to make the move." In a corresponding move, INF Danny Worth had his contract purchased from Triple-A Toledo.

Fantasy Tip: In addition to displaying limited range, Gonzalez was only batting .167 (5-for-30) at the time of his release. Light-hitting SS Andrew Romine, who had been in a platoon with Gonzalez, will see most of the action at the position.
