COACH KURT AT LARGE.....W, 10/15/14
Posted on: 10-14-2014

    Tigers Prez/CEO/GM Dave
Dombrowski held his end-of-
season/state-of-the-Tigers
media conference Tuesday.

    Dombrowski sounded like he
is resigned to losing high profile
free agents Max Scherzer and
Victor Martinez and that Detroit
will pick up the 2015 option on
reliever Joakim Soria.

    Here's my take:

GONE:   SP Max Scherzer, DH Victor
Martinez, RF Torii Hunter, RP Joba
Chamberlain, RP Phil Coke, RP Jim Johnson, RP Evan Reed, OF Ezequiel
Carrera, RP Joel Hanrahan [DL].

MIGHT BE GONE/MEDICAL LIST:   CA Alex Avila, SS Jose Iglesias, OF Andy
Dirks, RP Bruce Rondon, RP Luke Putkonen.
  >>  Hoping that Iglesias, Rondon and Dirks will all be OK by spring training
defies the odds. The Tigers and Avila have to be concerned about his
continuing concussion issues.

SHOULD BE GONE BUT WON'T BE:   RP Joe Nathan, RP Ian Krol, RP Pat
McCoy, RP Chad Smith, SP Robbie Ray, SP/RP Buck Farmer, 3Base coach
Dave Clark.      

NAMES TO WATCH IN SPRING TRAINING:   OF Steven Moya, OF Tyler Collins,
RP Jose Valdez, RP Melvin Mercedes, SP/RP Kyle Ryan.


    As Dombrowski indicated Tuesday, after the World Series will be a very
busy time for the Tigers.


COACH KURT
