This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, but Brandon Inge has told management that he’d rather start for someone else rather then play a reserve role with the Tigers. Jason Beck talks about the Giants being the team that’s most likely to want him and it’ll be interesting to see what we can get for him with that contract the Tigers gave him last year.
I have mixed feelings because I’ve always been a Brandon Inge fan. He’s been on this team longer then anyone and he was one of the guys who helped get the Tigers there in 2006. Still, there’s little doubt that he’s on the short end of the stick after the Tigers made this deal with the Marlins.
