Just a few odds and ends from over the weekend. Dontrelle Willis made a solid first impression in camp this weekend. With some pinpoint accuracy, the story yesterday was how Willis picked apart his Marlins teammate Miguel Cabrera. Also impressive is one of the guys who I think could make a solid contribution to the pen this year, Denny Cabrera. He let one pitch get away from him but overall, he threw the ball well. I really think guys like Denny
Cabrera Bautista and Francisco Cruceta could bolster the Tigers pen without them having to hit the trade market.
In other news, Todd Jones was announced as the Tigers starter tomorrow in their exhibition game against Florida Southern and Ivan Rodriguez is going to hit eight this year. Be sure to check out Billfer’s analysis of how the Tigers lineup should shake out heading into opening day.
