The Detroit Tigers suddenly have a hole in their infield in the wake of the Jose Iglesias injury, and need a shortstop. Many people around baseball speculated the defending AL Central champion Tigers would pursue free agent Stephen Drew. However, it appears general manager Dave Dombrowski has put the axe on any possible Drew signing. According to Lynn Henning of The Detroit News, the Tigers have no interest in signing Drew. Dombrowski suggested the Tigers could look at an internal candidate to replace Iglesias, prospects Danny Worth and Hernan Perez are two possibilities. Henning then speculated that the Tigers could look on the trade block to fill the need at shortstop. Nick Franklin, of the Mariners, and Darwin Barney, of the Cubs are two players Henning

  • I don't understand DD 's unwillingness to sign Drew? his not signing Perlalta is going to come back and haunt the Tigers. They decided not to sign a left fielder, but to platoon that position , to save money. Well, how did that work? then they let an all star ss go, without making an offer! Now they are with out a left side defense , let alone what damage is done to the offence. I sure hope their 5 hole pitcher can turn around his dismal Spring, ERA.
