https://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/mlb/tigers/2021/10/05/not-spending-like-drunken-sailor-but-detroit-tigers-have-ambitious-offseason-plan/6004563001/ Might that scene play out this winter with one of the high-priced shortstops on the market — Carlos Correa or Trevor Story or Marcus Semien — seated between them?“Just the fact that it's possible, I think, means we're in a really good place on this date and time,” Hinch said.But here's the reality of where the Tigers are on this date and time: While it is encouraging they have the resources and the will to shop for high-end talent this offseason, putting all their resources into buying a $30-$40 million a year shortstop might not be prudent.“It's more broad-based than that,” Avila said. “One player is not going to determine everything. I think we have several needs that we need to tackle in the offseason.Avila talked about pursuing a proven, veteran starting pitcher and catcher in free agency, as well as trying to upgrade at shortstop.“Pitching is very important,” Avila said. “We've established three young starters (Casey Mize, Tarik Skubal and Matt Manning), but because of injuries, it's set us back a little bit. The injury to Spencer Turnbull is devastating, really.“And the injury to Matt Boyd, there's a decision looming there now going into the offseason.”“The resources will be there,” Avila said. “But I will caution you, this is not going to be spending like a drunken sailor. This is going to be a very measured process. We're going to make sure whatever decisions we make free agent-wise don't sink the organization for years to come. We want it to help the organization for years to come.” Avila, from 2015 through 2020, shred some $200 million off the payroll. Miguel Cabrera, who is owed $32 million each of the next two seasons, is the last remaining oversized contract on the books. They have salary commitments to just two other players for next season — $7.5 million to Jonathan Schoop and $5 million to Robbie Grossman.If want to pick one player who was emblematic of the Tigers' turnaround in 2021, pick Grossman. He signed a two-year, $10 million contract last winter and produced a career-year at age 31.On a team that had ranked at or near the bottom of the league in walks and chasing pitches out of the strike zone, Grossman was a season-long object lesson in taking professional at-bats.He walked 98 times, second-most in the American League.On a team that was trying to establish a culture of aggressive play, Grossman produced just the seventh 20-20 season in club history — 20 homers, 20 stolen bases.
