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.
Mar 21 - 2:21 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.

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.
