Detroit Tigers INF Hernan Perez will be the starting third baseman against the Chicago White Sox Saturday, April 18.
Fantasy Tip: Perez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not received a lot of playing time this season, so owners on FantasyScore should look for other options to use.

Detroit Tigers SS Jose Iglesias (shins) has officially been ruled out for the rest of the season. He's recovering from stress fractures in both of his shins. "We do not plan on having Iglesias back with us this year," general manager Dave Dombrowski said, adding that Iglesias "is progressing as projected, but we do not think he will be ready at any point this season." SS Andrew Romine has been starting at shortstop and his hitting just .200 with a .252 OPS in 39 games. SSs Eugenio Suarez or Hernan Perez may be called up eventually.
Fantasy Tip: You can now officially cut bait from Iglesias in all redraft leagues if you were holding out hope for a late-season return. Romine, because of his offensive deficiencies, should only be owned in AL leagues.

Free-agent SS Stephen Drew (Red Sox) is open to signing a one-year deal with the Detroit Tigers, according to a person familiar with Drew's thinking. Drew is believed to want $14 million on a one-year contract. For now, SS Andrew Romine figures to share shortstop duties with SSs Danny Worth or Hernan Perez. Drew would likely want to wait until after opening day to sign, so that there won't be compensation attached to his name when he becomes a free agent the following season.

The Detroit Tigers acquired SS Andrew Romine from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, March 21, in exchange for SP Jose Alvarez. Romine is a switch hitter that could compete with SSs Danny Worth and Hernan Perez for a starting job with SS Jose Iglesias (shins) out.
Fantasy Tip: Romine and Worth are probably Detroit's best options, but they're both defensive-minded shortstops. If Detroit isn't satisfied, they could look to sign Stephen Drew. A platoon could develop between Worth and Romine, meaning they're only valuable in deep AL-only leagues.

Detroit Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said SS Eugenio Suarez was a long shot to make the team's opening day roster, which means SSs Danny Worth and Hernan Perez may battle for the starting shortstop job with SS Jose Iglesias (shins) out.
