Detroit Tigers players saw the team’s season end in disappointing fashion as Detroit missed the playoffs. Here are six moves the Tigers can make to reach the postseason when the calendar turns to 2017.
Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila reloaded instead of rebuilding the team’s roster last offseason.
What was particularly encouraging about the moves was that Avila executed them without surrendering any top prospects or vital Major League pieces. He also moved on from a number of fringe players.
With the Tigers built for contending, but falling just short in 2016, Avila will need to pull off a similar reloading effort ahead of next season.
This time around, Detroit may not hand out multiple contracts with values eclipsing $100 million, but they’ll no doubt be active.
Because of said contracts and other previous salary commitments, Detroit will need to be creative in clearing cap space and acquiring Major League talent.
Here are five moves the Detroit Tigers can make in order to help the club reach the playoffs in 2017.
