A Look at Shane Greene, Statistically

On Friday, the Tigers found their fifth starter for the 2015 season via a three team trade with the Yankees and D-Backs. The deal cost them Robbie Ray and Domingo Leyba, but they are now able to slot Shane Greene, 26, into the rotation without subtracting anything from the Major League roster.

As is typically the case around this time of the year, participation in the winter leagues is starting to dwindle as rosters get refined and players start to take time off in anticipation for spring training in a couple of months.

At this point in the offseason, even if the Tigers wanted to acquire an elite reliever, the well has essentially run dry.

2014 TigsTools: Best Infield Defense

The Tigers usually preferred middle infielders with projectable defensive skill sets, and as a result the system has been littered with glove-first prospects. With a shift toward players with more offensive potential from the amateur ranks and the trades of guys like Devon Travis and Domingo Leyba, the depth of defenders around the infield is noticeably thin outside of top dog Dixon Machado.
