|Andy Dirks could still play a big role |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(12/5/13) One side effect of Nick Castellanos' move back to third base following the recent Prince Fielder-for-Ian Kinsler trade is that the Tigers now have an unsettled situation in left field. And though they haven't ruled out acquiring a player to fill the void, they haven't given up on Andy Dirks yet either, according to MLive.com.
"The ideal situation is Andy Dirks would play like he did two years ago," general manager Dave Dombrowski said Wednesday. "He didn't have a good year last year. I know his knee bothered him. He admitted it more after the year that it bothered him all year long, so I'm looking for Andy Dirks to come back."
Splitting time with Matt Tuiasosopo, Dirks hit .256 with nine homers and a .686 OPS in 438 at-bats last season, but he hit .322 with eight homers and an .857 OPS in 314 at-bats in 2012, crushing righties to the tune of a .336 batting average and .889 OPS.
"We think he's a good big-league player. But am I ready to say for sure he's our left fielder and we can't get better by matching and mixing and doing something? No, I'm not prepared to do that at this point," Dombrowski said.
