If the Detroit brain trust is not confident their prized prospect will be ready to handle the left field job soon, I expect Castellanos will be used in trade to find a solid veteran left fielder.
Wouldn't it be wiser to sign some cheap vet for a 1-2 year deal?
And they could always bring back Torii Hunter for a year.
How much do you give him? I think if you feel good about his arm he's probably worth a Cliff Lee-minus deal, ~6/120m.
He was absolutely horrible in April 2012, but from May on he was an ace. Selective endpoints and all, but since he carried the improvement over to this year, I'd be comfortable saying that he has had 2 ace-quality seasons in a row.
It's really been 2 years. He was absolutely horrible in April 2012, but from May on he was an ace.
All of Lee's value at that point was generated in his 2 most recent seasons. Before that, he had -2.2 WAA for his career.
That means the Tigers will need to go out and find at least one reliable veteran southpaw via trade or free agency to bolster the bullpen.
Gary Gillette is still a guy? I guess I only really knew him from his ESPN tenure.
I'd hang on to Castellanos and explore dealing Porcello for OF help. He's about to get more expensive, could fetch a good return, and I think Smyly is better.
Another big offseason question for the Tigers, besides what they'll do about LF and the bullpen, is whether they can or will bring back Omar Infante, who is a free agent and quietly had a very solid season in 2013. Oh, and hiring a new manager of course. Is that a window closing? I'm feeling a draft.
I thought the child porn allegations would have killed his career. Although I guess they still play his "Rock and Roll Part I" at football games.
There's really nothing wrong with them that needs particular fixing.
