    Default Tigers make a HUGE deal for outfielder today...




    The Tigers signed free agent outfielder Jeff Frazier, according to the team's transactions page. Frazier, 29, appeared in nine games for the 2010 Tigers before playing in the Nationals' system in 2011. The corner outfielder owns a .271/.324/.415 line in parts of nine minor league seasons. He had been playing in the Mexican League this year.

    Happy days are here again!

    Is this really true?

    I think this may indicate that eldred's time is over when delmon returns, and the team may send down worth and call up berry or Matt young from Toledo, with Frazier moving in.

    Great analysis here... makes a ton of sense to get Berry up here. This team is desperately lacking speed and a sparkplug type player. My favorite thing about Berry in AAA this year is his 16 BB; albeit high strikeouts. He has about a stolen base per every other game, roughly. 27 years old and deserves a shot.

    The problem is he would probably fall into the "Clete Thomas" spot of not really having a need on the team. The speed part is, but being a 5th OF won't help much to get into the games. Now if Young was released or an OF injury that would be a different story.

    I'm a little surprised because there didn't seem to be a need for an outfielder at the upper minor league level. They just put Jerad Head on the DL this week, so that's probably part of it.

    .271/.324/.415 are not terrible major league numbers. He could be helpful potentially.

    I just like seeing "Young" and "released" in the same sentence.

    Delmon Young was recalled from AAA Toledo to fill the spot of the recently released Miguel Cabrera.

    I truly have a feeling Delmon's going to come back and be the hot bat this team needs.

    On 5/2/2012 in the bottom of the 9th with the Tigers losing by one run and one out, the pinch runner for Alex Avila at first base was Gerald Laird.....
