Trust me. Boston is a flash in the pan every other year – Detroit will contend now and forever.
St. Petersburg, Fla. — The Tigers’ top two front-office generals, Dave Dombrowski and Al Avila, both were with the team this week as Detroit continued its chase for Cuban outfielder Rusney Castillo.
The Tigers were maintaining secrecy, but it is known they are heavily pursuing Castillo, 27, a right-handed hitter with speed and power, and with skills that could make him the team’s center-field replacement a month after Austin Jackson was traded to Seattle.
