Tigers reassigned INF Danny Worth to Triple-A Toledo.

And so we can officially eliminate another name from the shortstop competition. With Hernan Perez also being sent down, it looks like Andrew Romine and Alex Gonzalez will share the job unless the Tigers do something at the last minute.
Mar 25 - 9:25 AM

Danny Worth doubled against the Nationals on Thursday to maintain his .333 average this spring.

Worth was dropped from the Tigers' 40-man roster in December, but he went unclaimed. Now he's the top internal candidate to be the team's Opening Day shortstop with Jose Iglesias hurt. Ideally, GM Dave Dombrowski will go out and get someone before then.
Mar 20 - 4:11 PM

Tigers sent INF Danny Worth outright to Triple-A Toledo.

Worth was designated for assignment by the Tigers last week to clear a 40-man roster spot for new reliever Joba Chamberlain and drew no attention on waivers. The 28-year-old infielder hit .223/.305/.308 in 2013 at Triple-A.

Tigers designated INF Danny Worth for assignment.

The move was made in order to clear room on the 40-man roster for the addition of Joba Chamberlain. Worth batted just .220/.299/.304 at Triple-A in 2013 while missing the last few weeks of the season with a shoulder displacement. He's a good defender at multiple infield spots, though, so it's possible someone will scoop him up.

Tigers placed INF Danny Worth on the 60-day disabled list.

Tigers recalled INF Danny Worth from Triple-A Toledo.

Worth is an incredibly slick fielding infielder with the ability to cover three different infield positions. He isn't much with the stick though, and will function mainly as a defensive replacement and occasional pinch-runner for the Tigers down the stretch.
