Tigers preparing Andrew Romine, Hernan Perez as emergency catchers


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

"If it's an emergency, you're just hoping to have somebody back there who can catch the ball," Ausmus said. "You obviously have your back against the wall. You need to get through the game. And if need be, you can call someone up the next game. You just want someone who can catch the ball and maybe have enough arm to throw a runner out so they don't run wild." 


Tigers' Brad Ausmus: Victor Martinez no longer an option as catcher

Ausmus: Tigers could keep both Andrew Romine, Hernan Perez


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2015) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Monday that he can envision a scenario where the team keeps both Andrew Romine and Hernan Perez on the 25-man roster heading into the season, MLive.com reports.

Romine and Perez were thought to be competing for the same superutility role this spring, but Ausmus may choose not to roster a fifth outfielder and instead roll with the two infielders, each of whom the manager planned to use in the outfield this spring.

If the team goes with four outfielders, it's likely Tyler Collins won't make the Opening Day roster.

"If you look at our team, we have Yoenis Cespedes, J.D. Martinez, Rajai Davis and Anthony Gose -- we have four outfielders," Ausmus said. "Where's (Collins) playing? Maybe he can pinch hit here and there. Maybe one of those corner outfielders really needs a day off and we're facing a tough righty -- maybe a guy like Collins fits into that mold. But barring injury, between those four outfielders, the vast majority of playing time is already consumed."


Tigers' Andrew Romine, Hernan Perez to see time in OF this spring


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Thursday that infielder Andrew Romine will get some work in the outfield during the spring, MLive.com reports.

His only playing time in seven minor-league seasons also came at those same three infield positions.

If Romine is able to handle the outfield defensively, he could serve in the a similar role as utility player Don Kelly, who saw action at every position at all three outfield positions as well as work at first base, second base and third base in each of the Tigers' last two seasons.

Romine, who is out of options, is expected to compete for a roster spot with infielder Hernan Perez, who will also get some playing time in the outfield. Romine hit .227/.279/.275 with two home runs, 12 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 251 at-bats in his first season with the Tigers in 2014. Perez, who has split time primarily between shortstop and second base in the minors, hit .287/.331/.404 with six home runs, 53 RBI and 21 stolen bases in 547 at-bats with Triple-A Toledo.

Andrew Romine packs on the muscle


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Romine saw some time in the majors last year, hitting .259/.308/.287 in 108 at-bats.
