Dombrowski: Joe Nathan still Tigers closer heading into 2015
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Tigers general manager and president Dave Dombrowski has proclaimed embattled right-hander Joe Nathan as the team's closer in 2015 despite plans to bolster what was a terrible bullpen this season.

"I would think he starts as our closer going into it," Dombrowski told MLive.com. "But he has to perform up to the capabilities required of doing it."

Nathan struggled mightily in his first season with Detroit after signing a two-year deal worth $20 million. He converted 35 of 42 save opportunities, but finished with a 4.81 ERA. He did bring it down from 5.61 at the All-Star break, but lost velocity and recorded a 1.56 WHIP in the second half.

Report: Miguel Cabrera might not need surgery on ankle
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Tigers general manager and president Dave Dombrowski believes the large bone spur in the right ankle of slugger Miguel Cabrera might not require surgery, per MLB.com.

"Is it a possibility? I'd say it is a possibility," Dombrowski said. "I don't know if it's going to happen or not. Sure. There's a spur in there, and people that have looked at him so far tell me that it has to be removed. It's a relatively easy - for them - procedure. But I don't want to draw any conclusions yet, because he's not done with that whole process."

Cabrera performed better down the stretch despite an ankle ailment that plagued him throughout the year. He won American League Player of he Year honors in September by batting .379 with eight home runs and 18 RBI.

Tigers not negotiating long-term deal with LHP David Price
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Both David Price and general manager Dave Dombrowski have confirmed that the Tigers have not spoken with the left-hander about a possible long-term contract.

Dombrowski has not ruled out the possibility for down the road, according to MLive.com, but he did say there are no current negotiations.

Price who is under contract through 2015, was a mild disappointment before and after joining the Tigers at the trading deadline, though he did pitch well in a loss in his lone postseason outing. He finished the season 15-12 with a 3.26 ERA. He yielded a career-high 25 home runs and was criticized for staying in the strike zone too much.

Dombrowski: Tigers SS Jose Iglesias should return as starter
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Tigers general manager and president Dave Dombrowski believes shortstop Jose Iglesias is talented enough to regain the starting spot in 2015 that he lost this year to injury.

Dombrowski told MLive.com that he didn't want to "anoint" Iglesias as the starter because Brad Ausmus and his coaching staff deserves to make that determination after seeing him perform in spring training. But he added that the medical prognosis looks good.

"The doctors tell me he'll be fine," Dombrowski said. "The doctors tell me he's going to be ready for spring training."

There would appear to be no strong candidate to compete with Iglesias if he picks up where he left off in 2013, when he batted .303 and played sterling defense. They used several players at shortstop, none of whom performed particularly well.
