After a strong finish in 2021 the Tigers were considered fringe contenders for the season. However, they have now stumbled to a 42-65 record, with the worst offense in baseball. He said, "going out there and do what I can every day -- that's my bottom line." "But young men here have the opportunity to get more at-bats, and see what we have for next year.
