Tigers | Alex Gonzalez released

Sun, 20 Apr 2014 11:22:58 -0700

The Detroit Tigers have released SS Alex Gonzalez. "We need to have a little more range defensively at shortstop," general manager Dave Dombrowski said. "We just didn't see it there and didn't see it getting better so we figured it was time to make the move." In a corresponding move, INF Danny Worth had his contract purchased from Triple-A Toledo.

Fantasy Tip: In addition to displaying limited range, Gonzalez was only batting .167 (5-for-30) at the time of his release. Light-hitting SS Andrew Romine, who had been in a platoon with Gonzalez, will see most of the action at the position.

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 19:36:23 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Joe Nathan said his arm felt livelier during his appearance Thursday, April 17, after he dealt with dead arm earlier in the month. "My velocity is what it's going to be, but moreso I was locating where I wanted to. But it did feel like it was a lot livelier. There's different 91s, different 92s, but today, at least finishing pitches, it felt like it was jumping out of my hand better," Nathan said.

Tigers | Joe Nathan's struggles continue

Thu, 10 Apr 2014 08:59:35 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Joe Nathan blew the save against the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday, April 9, allowing three runs in the ninth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Nathan is trying to pitch through a "dead-arm" phase, which explains his rough outings of late. Although it's always tough to bench one of your closers this early in the season, this would be a situation that would warrant it. There's no indication that Brad Ausmus is considering any kind of committee approach, but if he does, Al Alburquerque, Phil Coke and Joba Chamberlain would likely be involved.
