But like all the other Tigers, he'd rather be back in Detroit tonight looking ahead to the American League Championship Series.

Move Ian Kinsler: We mean this literally. Or figuratively. It’s always been assumed that Kinsler could one day be moved to the outfield. It was also assumed, after 2011, that the move would be far down the line. But after a career-high 18 errors, there may be no time like the present. Moving him to a corner outfield spot might make it easier to trade Nelson Cruz and make room for Jurickson Profar at second. . .
