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.
