Tigers Detroit Tigers: Defensive Problems Arenít Going Away Anytime Soon

Quote:
Going into the 2012 season, it was clear the Detroit Tigers were going to have a bad defense. They have had bad defensive clubs for years prior but got around the defensive problems with a good offense.

In 2011 the Tigers had the fifth most errors in the American League, but also had a top four offense. With the addition of Prince Fielder, Miguel Cabrera ó an already below average fielder ó would have to move to third base. The Tigers had no consistent second basemen going into the season. And Jhonny Peralta, who can get balls hit to him but has no range at Shortstop. Then an outfield that had one good defensive player in it.

I'm surprised about Cabrera on third.. well not really surprised, but I didn't expect him to do this bad fielding. I thought he was going to be an average third baseman.. no superstar, but just average.

He gets everything hit at him, just no range.
