Free-agent SS Stephen Drew (Red Sox) is open to signing a one-year deal with the Detroit Tigers, according to a person familiar with Drew's thinking. Drew is believed to want $14 million on a one-year contract. For now, SS Andrew Romine figures to share shortstop duties with SSs Danny Worth or Hernan Perez. Drew would likely want to wait until after opening day to sign, so that there won't be compensation attached to his name when he becomes a free agent the following season.

The Detroit Tigers acquired SS Andrew Romine from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, March 21, in exchange for SP Jose Alvarez. Romine is a switch hitter that could compete with SSs Danny Worth and Hernan Perez for a starting job with SS Jose Iglesias (shins) out.
Fantasy Tip: Romine and Worth are probably Detroit's best options, but they're both defensive-minded shortstops. If Detroit isn't satisfied, they could look to sign Stephen Drew. A platoon could develop between Worth and Romine, meaning they're only valuable in deep AL-only leagues.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim INF Andrew Romine elected to hit exclusively from the left side midway through the 2012 season, but he has resumed switch-hitting this season. He hit .327 in the minors in the month of July, and had picked up six hits over his past 17 at-bats with the big club Wednesday, Sept. 11.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim recalled SS Andrew Romine from the minors Wednesday, Aug. 14, and optioned P Nick Maronde in a corresponding move. Romine is starting at shortstop Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: Romine will fill in while Erick Aybar recovers from a calf cramp. Romine should only be owned in AL leagues if Aybar winds up on the DL. Otherwise, he's just a depth piece. Romine is best known for his stellar defense. He makes frequent contact with the stick but doesn't own much power at all.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim INF Bill Hall, who will be competing with INFs Andrew Romine, Luis Rodriguez, Brendan Harris and Tommy Field for a backup infield job this spring, shed roughly 20 pounds in the offseason in order to become more agile and receive more looks at shortstop. However, the team sees him as more of a backup at second base, third base or the corner outfield spots.
