Korean shortstop Kim Ha-Seong could be a long-term solution for the Tigers

Photo by Han Myung-Gu/ The Kiwoom Heroes’ star shortstop will be available to MLB clubs this offseason and Detroit should be aggressive bidders. After a number of long, desolate years at the bottom of the food chain in major league baseball, there’s finally legitimate reason for optimism regarding Detroit baseball. Although the product on the field was still poor in 2020, the team had a widely-applauded draft class, briefly flirted with a playoff berth, saw their top prospects debut in the majors, and hired a progressive coaching staff shortly after the season drew...

Tigers trade target: The Rays are shopping Blake Snell

Tigers trade target: The Rays are shopping Blake Snell

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports This feels pretty “cart before the horse” but since he’s apparently on the market, let’s take a quick look. Perhaps the most enduring image, and the source of the most debate, of the 2020 season, was that of Tampa Bay Rays ace Blake Snell stalking off the field in obvious frustration after being pulled from Game 6 of the World Series. The 2018 American League Cy Young award winner had just allowed his second hit of the game, a single to Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Will Smith. With no outs and Mookie Betts and the top of the Dodgers...

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports The Rule 5 draft is the next landmark date on MLB’s offseason calendar. Let’s take a look at who might pique the Tigers’ interest. The Winter Meetings, an early December standard for MLB teams expanding beyond living memory, will be held virtually this offseason as a heath and safety precaution.

Jeimer Candelario was the Tigers Player of the Year

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports The Candyman changed positions, changed his approach, and broke out in a big way this season. Recently, the Detroit chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America voted Jeimer Candelario the Tigers Player of the Year. That honor was well-earned. After consecutive seasons in which he struggled mightily at the plate, Candelario overcame a rough start and a positional switch to break out in a big way offensively. For Tigers general manager Al Avila, there had to be some relief in his success. After all the failings of the Detroit Tigers...

Which free agents should the Tigers target?

Photo by Todd Kirkland/ BYB staff discuss who we’d like to see the team add to the roster this offseason. We find ourselves in the early stages of what is sure to be a very unusual free agent season. Teams, who have seen their revenue deeply impacted by a season without fans, have seemed cagey about the idea of spending big on free agency, and many of the would-be big names coming available this season have already signed contract extensions. That said, the Tigers have let several of last season’s acquisitions walk, and will need to sign free agents in order to...
