Detroit Tigers INF Danny Worth struck out two batters during a scoreless inning of relief against the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 22, allowing only one hit while throwing several knuckleballs. Manager Brad Ausmus said he would continue to be available to pitch in an emergency. "We talked to him today about throwing a pen every 10 to 14 days," Ausmus said. "Don't get me wrong, he's an infielder, but if he can save our bullpen in a game like that, that would be great."

The Detroit Tigers are expected to use INF Danny Worth and SS Andrew Romine as a platoon at shortstop moving forward. Manager Brad Ausmus said the team will not use a strict lefty-righty platoon at the position.

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.

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.
