Tigers Agree to Terms With Speedy Left Fielder Davis

Monday marked the beginning of MLB’s annual Winter Meetings in Orlando, Fla., and with it came a slew of free agent signings and trades.

Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski has never hesitated to make a splash at the meetings.

Detroit Tigers’ Postseason Report Card

As November arrives and seasons change, another year of Tigers baseball ends on a dull note. A preseason favorite to win the World Series, Detroit once again fell flat.

What went wrong? The hitting? The team who was first in hits and batting average in 2013 and second in OBP and SLG? That lineup?
