Detroit Tigers: Is It Time to Switch Up the Batting Order?
If there is anything consistent about the Detroit Tigers, it is the hitting. The hot players continue to be hot and the rest, well…not so much.
Does Brad Ausmus keep the good things going or make a change to get the sleepy bats to wake up?
Of course, April is a strange month and many hitters are just getting warmed up for the rest of the year. But, if something isn’t working, is it better to stick with it or make changes?
I’d like to offer a suggestion for switching up a few things in the line up:
: He isn’t hitting like he used to and it is becoming troublesome. He has one of the lowest batting averages of the everyday players, which is not typical for the Big Man. Miggy needs something to change and shifting him to second in the lineup could be just enough to get his bat going again. It would be unexpected to the big hitter to hit second and he might even be able to get a few more at-bats, which will come in handy when he’s hot again. Sometimes, all it takes is a subtle move to make a big difference.
: Put him in after Victor. Why? His RBIs. His home runs.

Jose Iglesias: He likes it there. He does well and he should stay there. Not many men want to be the last guy and not many men have the same threat in the nine hole as Iglesias does. His .324 batting average speaks volumes.
