On this week’s Tigers Tidbits, MLB Insider Jon Heyman makes his prediction on who the Detroit Tigers will land this off-season and a recap of this week’s AFL action.
As the World Series is set to start this week, the hot stove is already cooking up predictions on what free agent will land where including one that seems pretty clear to Detroit Tigers fans. We will also take a look at the AFL action over the weekend as one position player had a solid weekend. Here is this week’s Tigers “Spooky Tidbits”.
Here’s a Halloween Costume that every Detroit Tigers fan will like
Last week on MLB Network, Jon Heyman predicted that the Detroit Tigers will be a landing spot for Carlos Correra or the possibility he goes back to Houston.
There are several options to consider including Corey Seagar but he said he wanted to go back to Los Angeles but the Dodgers have some serious questions to consider when it comes to their payroll. Bill Madden of NY Daily News said there is a potential for a lockout but nothing has been confirmed at all.
There is a good contingency of Tigers fans that want to see Correra in a Tigers uniform. So much so that one Twitter account created this.
For now, Tigers fans will have to wait as the Houston Astros take on the Atlanta Braves starting tomorrow night with Houston being the favorites heading into the series. This is the first time the Braves have appeared in the World Series since 1999. The game time is set for 8:06 PM.
Eric De La Rosa powers the Salt River lineup
De La Rosa went 2-for-4 with a home run and drove in three as Salt River won 8 to 1 over Scottsdale on Saturday. He also homered in Friday’s loss to Mesa. He is the only positional player left in the AFL as Ryan Kriedler (calf) and Spencer Torkelson (ankle) will heal up for spring training. Pitchers Chavez Fernander, Garrett Hill, Zack Hess, and Wilmer Flores, all righties, continue to play for the Rafters.
Flores started Thursday’s game and got the loss. After a rough first inning in which he allowed all four runs he gave up, he settled down and struck out five in three innings of work.
