I still like Norris for the bullpen.  Long term I think that is his best role.  I think Liriano will make the rotation, so it will be kind of natural.  I think Norris can be a late inning impact Milleresque type of reliever.

I don't mind a trial of it.  Plenty of pitching openings everywhere on this team.

Norris has much more value as a starter, and more depth to his arsenal than Miller.

All he has to do is prove it.

Artie Lewicki was optioned this morning.  Gardenhire says he has a lot of potential but he needs to start taking his career seriously.  He has difficult time focusing on the mound and his off-field escapades have been irritating some of the Tigers veterans.  The final straw this spring was when he hid Iglesias' glove during a game, the same prized glove the infielder has been using since he played on the fields of Cuba. Iglesias panicked when he came back to the bench after hitting a weak grounder to the second baseman and couldn't find his glove.  Lewicki's buddy Jim Adduci tossed a glove to Iglesias and said: "I am sure your glove will show up.  Use this one for now".  Iglesias screamed: "I can't use that.  That's Nick's glove"  Adduci responded: "That's OK.  What the **** is Castellanos going to do with a glove?" Lewicki laughed loudly in the background.

Derek Norris has to be gone now. 

Yeah, I think this is it.  When Saltalamacchia is a step up defensively and your last name isn't Piazza and Jim Price won't oversell your abilities, there probably isn't much hope for your services.

Next time that you say "*****", be sure to pronounce it "hoo-er".

Update

Starters - Zimmermann, Fulmer, Liriano, Boyd, Norris      

Mike Fiers looks like Mike Pelfrey 2.0

Pen -  Farmer, Bell, Greene, Stumpf, Barbato, Wilson, Saupold

I know VerHagen is out of options but I think he'll be the roster spot they need for Goodrum. He had his chances.  

 

Catchers -McCann. Hicks  

Infield - Cabrera, Machado, Iglesias, Candelario 

Outfield - Castellanos, Martin, Mahtook

DH - Martinez

Bench - JaCoby Jones, Goodrum, Ronny Rodriguez

All three utility guys have earned it. I think they make some kind of deal to keep Reyes in the system but not keep him with the major league team.   Maybe VerHagen, maybe someone else to free up a roster spot for Rodriguez..

Know it's going to be a fun season when people's projected rosters have multiple players that I'm not 100% certain which they are

I think there is good chance the Tigers go with 8 relievers and a three-man bench of Hicks, Reyes and Amarista/Rodriguez.  That is becoming more common.  They can always shuttle guys back and forth when the need arises.
