Roster Projections - March 24

Before the projections, I didn't get a chance to log on to deal with the news of the weekend.

Miguel Cabrera is a Tiger for the next eight years, after signing a $152,000,000 deal. This locks him up through his prime years. If he sticks at third, he will likely be the greatest Tigers third baseman of all time during that time.

Curtis Granderson got hit by a pitch and broke his finger. He's already been placed on the DL in case of a quick return, but the prognosis is roughly three weeks. Based on yesterday's lineup, it seems like Edgar Renteria will move to the leadoff spot and Brandon Inge will play in center. No word yet who gets the roster spot. I would imagine this means Freddy Guzman cracks the roster, as it will be tough to pass a guy having the Spring he's had through waivers. Still, I don't think he'll be any more than Nook II and should be the first to go if there are no injuries before Granderson's return. The beautiful thing about baseball is that you can switch positions during the game. A backup centerfielder can cover catcher if the centerfielder can catch.

Tigs Town is reporting the Tigers released Ryan Seawell, Mark Haske, Miguel Linares, and Jorge Patino.

I don't see Manny Miguelez projected. Is he a possibility for West Michigan?
