Detroit Tigers executive vice president of baseball operations and general manager Al Avila should sign some recently non-tendered players. One hypothetical fit is Jace Peterson.
Detroit Tigers fans have seen plenty of talent exit the team since Opening Day.
Most of the aforementioned group were traded during the regular season, but Romine—along with Anibal Sanchez, Bruce Rondon and Alex Presley—have left the organization by one way or another this offseason.
It obviously remains to be seen just what the Tigers will do this winter, but it wouldn’t be a shock if the likes of Romine, Sanchez, Rondon and Presley aren’t the only offseason departures.
In most of those cases, Detroit has a ready-made replacement waiting in the wings.
Dixon Machado is a like-for-like successor to the slick-fielding Iglesias, while any number of young arms like Joe Jimenez, Bryan Garcia, Jairo Labourt or Zac Reininger could step into late-inning roles.
Kinsler is a bit more tricky to replace.
