It’s Simple What The Detroit Tigers Should Do When Andy Dirks Returns From The DL

By: Pat Caputo

Don Kelly would be the odd man out and designated to the minor leagues for assignment. The idea of sending Quintin Berry to Triple-A because he has options remaining is absurd. Berry has earned his spot on the active roster, and to play his way out of the starting lineup. Kelly has some speed, but Berry is much faster and has exhibited a knack to steal bases. He is a better outfielder than Kelly. He’d be a better bench player. While Kelly can play third base, when is that going to be needed? Miguel Cabrera plays there every day. If something happens with Cabrera, the Tigers have several options at third base. Ryan Raburn is a right-handed hitter – a need – and as poorly as he has hit this season, there would be a team that would pick him up if he asked for his release (My best guess is Raburn would clear waivers). Raburn, with a change of scenery, could break loose.
