They chose to option Wynton Bernard to Triple-A Toledo and chose to trade Bryan Holaday for Bobby Wilson and Myles Jaye.

Will the Tigers Beat the Predictions of the Sports Analysts?
After four excellent seasons, beginning in 2011, when the Tigers clinched the division title, 2015 was disappoint. Detroit may have finished last in the AL Central division, but the team’s batting average was .270, the best in the league. Early predictions in 2016 don’t seem to think that the Tigers can make it back on top, but the team has made changes to fix some its issues.
The pitching staff was cited as the reason the 2015 team lost. The Tigers brought on Jordan Zimmermann, who pitched a no-hitter in 2014 for the Washington Nationals. Now that Justin Verlander isn’t struggling with an injury, he should be a force to be reckoned with the entire season. Anibel Sanchez was also sidelined with an injury last season, and he looks to be healthy again and ready to pitch.
