Danny Worth In, Adam Everett Out at Shortstop


Adam Everett’s days as a Detroit Tiger are reportedly over. Everett will be designated for assignment on Tuesday while Danny Worth will be recalled from AAA Toledo.

Danny Worth has played eight games with Toledo since returning from his stint with the Tigers and has hit 0.344 in those games. He hit for a good average while with the Tigers but showed no power and did not draw a walk in his 25 plate appearance. Worth’s value comes with his glove as he is looks smooth in either middle infield position.

Adam Everett has been known as a very good defensive shortstop but he hasn’t been able to contribute offensively this year. Everett departs with just a 0.185 batting average in 81 at bats this season. At 33 years of age the Tigers must have decided that playing their younger options would pay dividends now and in the future.

Unlike the Dontrelle Willis situation, don’t expect the Tigers to be able to work a trade over the next ten days.
