Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Wednesday that Justin Upton is not a candidate to hit second to begin the season.
It sounds wide open beyond that, as Ausmus said "anybody else" when asked who could potentially fill the role. Upton began last season as the No. 2 hitter, but struggled miserably before eventually showing improvement out of the fifth and sixth spots in the order. Cameron Maybin saw considerable time out of the No. 2 spot last season, as well, but he was traded to the Angels during the offseason. The Tigers will likely try multiple players out of the spot this spring. Feb 22 - 9:42 AM
