Tigers cut Alex Gonzalez
After being acquired via trade right before the season started, Alex Gonzalez has been released by the Tigers.
Iglesias is expected to miss most or all of the 2014 season due to shin fractures and the injury was likely the impetus for a late spring trade that brought Gonzalez to the Tigers in exchange for Steve Lombardozzi.
Gonzalez was the opening-day starter at shortstop for the Tigers and delivered the game-winning hit in the bottom of the ninth. In all, though, Gonzalez hit .167/.219/.233. The 37 year old may well be facing forced retirement at this point.
As for the Tigers, they'll go with Andrew Romine or Danny Worth at short for the time being. Expect Stephen Drew rumors to persist until he's signed with someone or the Tigers come up with a good answer at shortstop.
