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.

Detroit Tigers SS Alex Gonzalez is excited about the chance to play regularly on a contending team. "It's a great opportunity," he said. "Now I have to take it."
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez will get a chance to fill in while Jose Iglesias is sidelined, so he is worth a look in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues, but remember he is 37 years old and on the downside of his career.

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez (knee) will not play a complete game or back-to-back games for a while when he returns from the disabled list Friday, May 3, according to manager Ron Roenicke.
Fantasy Tip: This news shouldn't keep you from putting Ramirez back in your starting lineup. But you'll need to be mindful of checking your roster on a daily basis to see if he's in the lineup. Alex Gonzalez will likely fill in at third base on days Ramirez sits out, but his loss of consistent playing time makes him useless in most fantasy formats.
