Shooting down the Sizemore rumor
If the Tigers are looking to upgrade at second base, as one unnamed official from another club was quoted as saying in a published piece on Spring Training trade rumors, it’s news to them, including the guy in charge of trades. Team president/general manager Dave Dombrowski said Sunday morning that the rumor was “absolutely not true,” and that the Tigers have been happy with Sizemore this spring.
The only question on Sizemore going into the final week of Spring Training is whether he hits seventh or eighth. For that matter, the rest of the Tigers starting lineup is set.
“A lot of clubs have been calling on our pitching,” Dombrowski said. “But as far as Scott Sizemore, we’re happy.”
