Tigers | Eugenio Suarez worked with Omar Vizquel

Sun, 15 Jun 2014 00:13:24 -0700

Former major league shortstop and current Detroit Tigers coach Omar Vizquel was a believer in SS Eugenio Suarez's bat, citing a shorter swing and improved discipline against breaking balls for his success in the upper minors. It is a reason why Suarez may have shown enough improvement to help the Tigers lessen their focus on the shortstop spot.

Tigers | Omar Vizquel to play short?

Sun, 23 Mar 2014 00:34:27 -0700

Omar Vizquel, who was signed as a first-base coach by the Detroit Tigers, may be drafted to play some games at shortstop. The idea was first thought of as a joke among the coaches, given the fact the team has had issues with keeping shortstops healthy, but there was a bit of seriousness to the thought. Vizquel has taken ground balls off and on all spring, just to help provide hands-on instruction to the Tigers' young infielders. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus stressed the idea won't likely happen.
