Andrew Romine (groin) went 2-for-3 with a walk, a run scored, and a stolen base in his return to the lineup Monday against the Rangers.

Romine left Friday's game with right groin tightness and sat out the remainder of the weekend. He should continue to share playing time with Dixon Machado at shortstop with Jose Iglesias sidelined.

Andrew Romine was forced to leave Friday's game against the Twins with right groin tightness.

He's considered day-to-day. With Jose Iglesias also on the shelf with an injury, expect Dixon Machado to see the bulk of the action at shortstop over the rest of the weekend.

Making a fourth straight start, Andrew Romine doubled, launched a solo homer and scored two runs in a win over the Indians.

He took Danny Salazar deep in the third inning to get the scoring going and then touched home plate in the fifth after a two-bagger. Romine was playing shortstop Tuesday, but he had started the previous three contests at third base over the struggling Nick Castellanos. We don't expect the Tigers to give up on Castellanos at this point, but Romine has earned some more starts with a nice .290/.338/.419 batting line this season.

Andrew Romine went 2-for-4 and scored a run as the Tigers fell to the Twins on Friday in Motown.

Romine has seen the bulk of the playing time at shortstop for the Tigers in recent weeks due to his defensive prowess, but he is hitting a mere .224/.274/.272 on the season with two homers, 12 RBI and 11 stolen bases.

Andrew Romine went 3-for-4 with two RBI against the Twins in Monday's victory.

The Tigers have soured on Eugenio Suarez, making Romine the primary shortstop by default. They'll be content with the steady defense they'll get from the former Angel. Offensive outbursts like this won't be common at all.

Andrew Romine went 0-for-3 and committed an error Thursday in the loss to the Rangers.

He also had a mental error when he failed to cover second base on what should have been a forceout. It was a pretty dreadful day for a guy who is only in the lineup for his defense. He's hitless in six starts over the last 11 days, and he's down to .173 in 81 at-bats for the season. It should mean more Danny Worth at shortstop for the Tigers.

Andrew Romine went hitless again, going 0-for-3 in a losing effort against the Twins on Friday.

Another disappointing night at the dish brings his season slash to a disappointing .218/.317/.236. While the Tigers lack better options at the moment, one has to wonder how long they'll accept virtually no offensive production from the shortstop position.

Andrew Romine went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in a win over the Royals on Sunday.

Romine, serving as the Tigers' de facto starting shortstop, collected three singles against starter Jason Vargas and the Royals bullpen. He'll continue to start the majority of the games at short and bat near the bottom of the Tigers' lineup for the foreseeable future, making him an AL-only option for the time being.

Andrew Romine is in the Tigers' lineup for Monday night's game against the White Sox, playing shortstop for a fourth consecutive game.

Romine, a switch-hitter, will face a lefty starter in John Danks for the third game in a row. The Tigers are in desperate need of help at shortstop, as they have had a .538 OPS from the position on the season, the third-worst mark in the American League. Romine hasn't been much help, posting a .650 OPS in 25 plate appearances.

Andrew Romine is starting at shortstop for the Tigers on Thursday afternoon against the Royals.

Alex Gonzalez will get a day off after starting the first two games of the season at short. The Tigers still don't have a good replacement for Jose Iglesias, who is out for the year with dual shin fractures.

Tigers acquired INF Andrew Romine from the Angels in exchange for LHP Jose Alvarez.

Romine will give the Tigers another option at shortstop as they look to replace Jose Iglesias (shins). He's the favorite to see the lion's share of at-bats versus right-handers, with Hernan Perez or Danny Worth starting against lefties. The 28-year-old isn't much at the plate (he's hit .250/.303/.270 over 74 games in the majors), but he can run a bit. It's possible he'll wind up with some deep league value as a cheap speed option.
Fri, Mar 21, 2014 02:21:00 PM

Andrew Romine blasted his first homer of the spring season in Friday's Cactus League loss to the Rockies.

Getting the start at third base, the 28-year-old finished the day 2-for-3, with his solo blast coming courtesy of Christian Bergman in the seventh inning. With a strong showing this spring, he could crack the Angels Opening Day roster in a reserve role.
Fri, Mar 7, 2014 07:06:00 PM

Andrew Romine put on 17 pounds of muscle this offseason.

Romine, 28, batted .259/.308/.287 over 123 plate appearances with the Angels last season. He'll enter spring training out of options, so he'll have to be exposed to waivers if he doesn't make the Opening Day roster.
Tue, Feb 18, 2014 12:53:00 PM

Angels recalled INF Andrew Romine from Triple-A Salt Lake.

He'll take Nick Maronde's place on the active roster. Romine is starting at shortstop Wednesday and will provide some insurance while Erick Aybar deals with a calf injury.
