What would the team look like if the Detroit Tigers stopped now?

The Detroit Tigers forecasted a busy offseason and have already made three moves on their big league roster; signing pitchers Matt Boyd and Michael Lorenzen while also trading away reliever Joe Jimenez for two prospects--but what if this is it?

For clarity's sake, I don't believe this is the last move that Scott Harris makes--there are still needs that many fans want to see addressed; mainly catcher, outfielder, and third base. Harris would undoubtedly like to address these areas, too. The club had shown interest in catcher William Contreras early in the offseason, and Harris has stated they are interested in finding a left-handed hitting infielder and a right-handed hitting outfielder.

It makes sense, considering Torkelson, Schoop, Baez, and Kreidler are all right-handed hitters and outfielders Austin Meadows, Kerry Carpenter, and Riley Greene are all left-handed hitters. Finding the contrary in each area would allow for more complimentary baseball overall while also giving manager AJ Hinch the opportunity to insert more favorable match-ups depending on who is starting.

Nevertheless, let's examine each position group and go over the glares that still may exist, if any:
