Five Major Questions For the Detroit Tigers in 2016

<a rel=

After a four-year reign that featured four straight divisional crowns, a pennant, and two ALCS appearances, the Detroit Tigers succumbed to an aging core and a litany of injuries that led to their first last place finish since 2008.

No longer under the guidance of Dave Dombrowski, new Tigers’ General Manger, Al Avila, made it clear that he doesn’t expect the Tigers to be basement dwellers in 2016 with the aggressive moves he’s made this offseason.

Signning Jordan Zimmermann, adding much needed bullpen arms, and a new look outfield, the Tigers are in position to potentially compete for their fifth divisional title in six seasons. But the Tigers are far from a perfect team.

Here are five major questions the Tigers face entering the 2016 season.

    Melvin Upton Jr. is the worst every day OF….Maybin showed some flashes in ATL last year, and plays and above average CF. That being said, the Tigers will have their hands full in a pretty tight division.

  2. Jack Cade

    “It is an area of doubt until proven otherwise” what kind of logic is that?

    The Tigers have the be bullpen in a LONG time. They didn’t just get one guy who should be good, but 3, and they already had 3 guys who were good last year.

    No. The Tigers bullpen has been fixed based upon the players there and their collective track record.

    THE. END.
