Detroit Tigers fans saw significant change this season after a disappointing 2015. In total, 17 players were brought in that played for the Tigers this season. Here they are, ranked from 17 to 1.
Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila recently completed his first full season in charge of the team. After taking over for Dave Dombrowski down the stretch last season, Avila made a number of changes to the team.
While keeping the same core in place, Avila reshaped the rest of the roster, letting a number complimentary pieces leave through free agency and trades.
While he didn’t make many in-season moves, Avila did bring in a number of players in relatively minor transactions that contributed to the Major League team. Here’s a look at Avila’s top acquisitions from last season. Only players who made it to the Majors with Detroit are on the list.
