Andrew Romine came to the plate with a total of eight men on base and went 0-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Twins.
The Tigers just love finding at-bats for Romine, but here he is in mid-August with a .223/.290/.330 line that is basically a match for his career output. He has 258 plate appearances in his utility role, while Dixon Machado, a younger player with some hope of being useful someday, has just 105 in his, even though he's hitting .302/.337/.365 in his limited opportunities. Even if the Tigers do still believe that the 31-year-old Romine is the better option for some reason, one would think they'd be better off giving the 25-year-old Machado his playing time.

Andrew Romine went 2-for-2 and scored a run as his team got blown out by the Royals on Wednesday.

He didn't start the game but came on to pinch-hit for Miguel Cabrera in the seventh inning with the score already 13-1. He reached on an infield single in that at-bat and later scored on a double-play ball hit by Alex Avila. Romine singled again in the ninth inning but was left stranded. The utility infielder has gotten quite a bit of playing time for a backup, slashing .228/.293/.355 with four home runs, 18 RBI and 33 runs in 217 plate appearances.

Andrew Romine swatted his fourth home run of the season as the Tigers were crushed by the Blue Jays on Friday.

Romine's solo shot in the ninth inning merely put a band aid on a stab wound, trimming their deficit to 7-2. He also doubled, finishing the night 2-for-4. The utility man is hitting .232/.298/.370 on the season and shouldn't even be considered as an option in most fantasy leagues.

Andrew Romine went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

Romine picked up an RBI triple against Miguel Gonzalez in the eighth inning. It was his second three-bagger of the season and bumped his RBI total to 12. While he has turned in multi-hit performances in two of his last three games, he is still hitting an uninspiring .238/.316/.369 over the course of 122 at-bats.

Andrew Romine went 2-for-4 and worked a walk during the first game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the White Sox.

His two singles represented half the hits his club could manage in the ballgame, so it is no surprise they failed to score. The veteran utility man has played every position except pitcher and catcher for the Tigers this year. He has a .228 batting average with two home runs, 18 runs scored and 11 RBI in 129 plate appearances.

Andrew Romine went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Angels.

Romine connected for a two-run blast off J.C. Ramirez in the second inning. The dinger was his second of the season. In addition, the 31-year-old utility option is hitting .244/.311/.415 over the course of 82 at-bats.
May 12 - 1:46 AM

Andrew Romine slugged his first career grand slam in the Tigers' 5-3 win over the Twins on Wednesday.

The four-run shot in the bottom of the fourth inning put Detroit on top for good. Romine now has six hits in 11 at-bats this season, and four of the extra-base variety, but we wouldn't expect the good times to last. The 31-year-old utilityman entered play Wednesday with a .243/.298/.300 career batting line at the major league level.

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Tuesday that Andrew Romine getting a chance at the regular center field job has "been discussed."

"We’ve talked about it," Ausmus said. "There are a lot of people in the organization who think he might be our best defensive center fielder – though he hasn’t been out there a ton. It’s been discussed." Just 13 of Romine's 201 career starts in the majors have come in center field. The Tigers aren't really closer now to figuring out who their starter will be there than they were at the beginning of camp, but it seems likely that Romine will remain in a super utility role.

Andrew Romine doubled twice Monday, including once in an eight-run eighth inning, as the Tigers came back to beat the Braves 10-7.

Romine homered Saturday, so he's off to quite the power surge this spring. That's three extra-base hits in seven at-bats for a guy who has never had more than nine in a season as a major leaguer (he has six homers, two triples and 19 doubles in 761 career at-bats).
Feb 27 - 4:41 PM

Tigers and INF Andrew Romine avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.3 million contract.

Romine made $900,000 last season and gets a nice raise in his second shot at arbitration eligibility. He saw action in 109 games in 2016, but he hit just .236 with two home runs. The 31-year-old utility man played every infield and outfield position for the Tigers last year and is likely to play all over the field again this year.

Tigers and 3B Andrew Romine avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $900,000 contract.

Romine batted .255/.307/.315 with 10 stolen bases in 109 games. He'll continue to serve in a superutility role for the Tigers this season.

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.
