There should be plenty of turnover on the Detroit Tigers roster, but there won’t be much on the FOX Sports Detroit broadcast team.

Although Rod Allen has announced most of the games this season, FOX Sports Detroit moved to a three-man analyst rotation for Tigers broadcasts in 2015. All three analysts and former Tigers players, Allen, Kirk Gibson and Jack Morris, will return for live broadcasts in the 2016 season according to MLive.com.

But much like the Tigers, the broadcast team will not be immune to changes either. FOX Sports Detroit might reportedly also add Craig Monroe to the mix and make it a four-man rotation.

Before this season, Allen was the full-time color analyst, but he took a reduced role this season with the three-man rotation. Gibson had to take a leave of absence when he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, however, he did return to the booth in early July.

When Morris isn’t in the booth for the Tigers, he also does Twins games for FOX Sports North. Morris has done just a few games for Detroit this year.

FOX Sports Detroit did not reveal how the workload for the 2016 season between the three or possibly four color analysts would be divided. Just another change Tigers fans have to look forward to in the offseason.
