It hasn’t been a week since baseball’s opening day, and alarm bells might just be ringing in Detroit. This was after Eduardo Escobar saved the day for the Twins in their 3-2 walkoff. Phil Coke blew the save. This after he stepped up to the plate for the Tigers after they lost confidence in Jose Valverde in the postseason. They could have found a closer in the FA market or via trade, but opted not to. And then, this came from the Detroit Tigers’ Twitter account. OFFICIAL: The #Tigers have signed Jose Valverde to a minor league contract. He will report to Lakeland. Papa Grande is comin’ back. He’s not there yet, but he’s looming in the horizon, trying to pick up the pieces from where he crashed and burned in Motown.
