  • Spencer Torkelson Will Have Shot To Be 1B Regular

    It sounds as though Detroit Tigers first baseman Spencer Torkelson will get every chance to earn a regular role at first base for the team in 2023. He will meet with the Tigers hitting coaches this week in Arizona. "We have other options if we need to, but clearly our best team has Spencer Torkelson as a major contributor," manager A.J. Hinch said. The Tigers don't have many other viable options for the cold corner, and Torkelson was the No. 1 overall pick of the 2020 draft, so Detroit has plenty invested in him. The 23-year-old power hitter struggled mightily in his first taste of the majors last year and was optioned to Triple-A Toledo, where he didn't fare a lot better. He's still young, though, and possessed plenty of pop, so he remains very interesting in dynasty/keeper leagues.

  • Jose Cisnero Gets $2.287 Million From Tigers

    The Detroit Tigers and relief pitcher Jose Cisnero agreed to a one-year, $2.287 million deal on Friday to avoid salary arbitration. Cisnero had an excellent 1.08 ERA (3.67 FIP), 1.36 WHIP, 19 walks and 23 strikeouts for the Tigers in 2022, but he only threw 25 relief innings due to an injury and personal issues. The 33-year-old right-hander will not be so fortunate next year if he is unable to limit his number of walks. Cisnero will only be attractive in 2023 deep holds leagues as a setup man in front of expected closer Alex Lange.

  • Tigers Moving Center Field In At Comerica Park

    The Detroit Tigers are moving in their fence in dead center field from 422 feet to 412 feet, starting with the 2023 season. Left field is being "relabeled" as 342 feet instead of 345 feet. It is not being moved in, but it's just a more accurate measurement. The height of the walls in center field will also be lowered from 8.5 feet to seven feet, with right-center field going from 13 feet to seven feet and right field from 8.5 feet to seven feet. The ballpark will lose the first row of seats in right field (around 50 seats total) because of the alterations. Comerica Park has long been known as a pitcher-friendly venue, and although these slight changes are unlikely to make a huge impact, they are certainly notable for the upcoming season.
