Track the Tigers.....
A number of factors can determine the result of a Spring Training position battle: performance, track record, the team's needs, the way the players fit and so on. The Tigers' utility infield and fifth outfield spots could be affected by two candidates' lack of Minor League options. Both Andrew Romine and Hernan Perez are out of Minor League options, meaning they would have to be designated for assignment and clear waivers to land in Triple-A. They are both technically competing for one job.
Miguel Cabrera has been hitting and throwing at Joker Marchant Stadium since arriving to Spring Training. He could begin working out at first base soon, too. Cabrera, somewhat limited at the start of camp by his surgically repaired right foot, ran while carrying 65 percent of his body weight Wednesday using the Alter-G anti-gravity treadmill the Tigers ordered for him.
Two days after designating Chad Smith for assignment, the Tigers lost the right-handed reliever to the A's on waivers. Detroit designated Smith for assignment on Tuesday to make room for the return of reliever Joba Chamberlain, giving them 10 days to trade, release or outright Smith. It took only two for Oakland to make a claim on the 25-year-old right-hander.
Andrew Romine is a candidate to fill Don Kelly's old role as the Tigers' superutility player. He has not yet reached Kelly replacement level on the number of gloves he carries around, having brought five to camp. One of those is his middle-infield glove, the same glove Romine has used in games ever since he turned pro eight years ago.
Brad Ausmus has been credited by a few different publications, including Baseball Prospectus, as one of the best pitch-framing catchers of his generation, if not all-time. If there's a skill to it, he should know. Still, there are now readily available statistics, and Ausmus wants to put them to use -- not just in Detroit, but throughout the Tigers' organization.
