Jason Beck has brought up the fact that the Tigers may be looking to Bobby Crosby as a backup plan if the Tigers don’t sign Adam Everett. Crosby’s career has been an injury filled one so there’s definitely some risk there. I know Adam Everett won’t light it up at the plate, but he’s a solid defender and if there’s a spot where you want to give up some offense for defense, it’s at shortstop. And Crosby has played six seasons and in only two of those has he gone more then 100 games.
I guess if the Tigers can’t come to a decent agreement with Everett then Crosby would be an option. It just has me worried that the Tigers might have an injury prone shortstop to go with a rookie second baseman. That’s probably way too many at bats for a guy like Ramon Santiago.
