So.... where's our left field help coming from now? As much of a fan as I was of signing Rajai Davis, I don't want him as our everyday LF.Andy Dirks needs back surgery and will likely miss 12 weeks.
Tough news for the Tigers, who were counting on Dirks to platoon with Rajai Davis in left field. It's estimated that the 28-year-old will need six weeks to get back to baseball activities and then another six weeks before returning to action. The Tigers plan to rely on internal options to fill in, but the speedy Davis will likely get more playing time than originally expected. His stock should go up on fantasy draft boards.
The article says we'll look internally but I'm not sure I'm a fan of any of the minor league options we have.
