Tigers expected to keep Soria
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Tigers are expected to exercise their option on pitcher Joakim Soria, according to MLB.com.

Soria has a $7 million club option for next season. The team will need to make a decision on the option shortly after the end of the World Series. While general manager Dave Dombrowski said the final decision hasn't been made yet, he hinted at the club picking up Soria's contract. "It's a situation where we look at him as being an important acquisition toward this [coming] year also," Dombrowski said. 

Soria posted a 3.25 ERA over 44 1/3 innings split between Texas and Detroit.

Tigers OF Torii Hunter believes he proved his worth in 2014
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter appears to be leaning toward a return in 2015. That will allow to play into his 40s - he turns 40 in July.

Hunter maintained his consistency and productivity in 2014 by batting .286 with 17 home runs and 83 RBI while batting mostly second in the lineup. But his team was knocked out without winning a game in the postseason.

"Playing for a contender is very important to me," he told MLive.com. "But taking a lesser role will be hard for me when my core numbers are pretty good, not just for a guy that's 39 years old but also for a 22-year-old player. The last three or four months of the season, I played pretty good defense as well.

"I know that we all get older, but until I give you signs that I can't help a team, don't count me out just yet. I've been one of the most consistent hitters in baseball. Everybody knows what they are going to get."

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.
