Center field and catcher are problems that might not go away. Torres can’t hit. Neither has Gene Kingsale been an answer. Ditto for Inge and his catching partner, Matt Walbeck.
The Tigers could, conceivably, get away with Torres-Kingsale if the other people begin to click. But fail to field a catcher with some crunch, and big innings are tough to come by, as might have been deduced by watching the Tigers.
