Platooning Inge At 2nd Doesn’t Make Sense
While it is understood Brandon Inge’s only real chance for success as a major league hitter at this point is vs. left handed pitching, platooning him at second base with another right-handed hitter, Ryan Raburn, does not make sense.
Inge must be a significant contributor at the plate to justify his spot. He can’t be floundering around with an OPS below .700 or something ridiculous. That is unless Miguel Cabrera does not perform well defensively at third base and the Tigers go to a Plan B.
