Detroit Tigers: 3 players who may not return for the 2023 season
By Tyler Kotila
The Detroit Tigers are going to see some roster shakeups ahead of 2023.
As the Detroit Tigers finish the 2022 season, some players may not return when the 2023 season rolls around. Especially with the Tigers moving on from Al Avila after seven seasons of him being at the helm as the team’s general manager.
For the Detroit Tigers, a wholesale change could occur in the team’s front office. With a plethora of options for the general manager position, there is a lot to consider as the team continues to conduct its search. Whether they opt to go with an inside hire like Sam Menzin or someone else or choose an outside hire who may pique their interest, there are options.
The Tigers organization is going to shift its direction. Even with an inside hire, things will change, and a complete inventory or analysis of the organization will happen. This is going to result in the Tigers making some personnel changes.
That does not just apply to the front office. However, there will be players who are on their way out after the 2022 season. With some roster changes likely to be on the way, there’s going to be a bit of a shakeup.
Whether it’s by way of trades, cuts, or a designation for assignment, things are going to change on the roster. The Tigers need to make changes, so there are going to be some familiar faces who end up being on the way out.
