The Tigers have a new Director of Baseball Operations. I believe AJ Hinch and his entire coaching staff will be fired at the end of this current season. Don’t be shocked if Bruce Bochy is named new field manager in Detroit. Bruce hasn’t been retired and away from the game for long.

I ain't buying that!

What seems most reasonable at this point would be for Harris to totally revamp the scouting department first. I think that Chadd is gone, as well as others. I see a lot of attention given to bio-mechanics in the organization going forward. I see a major change on the 40 man roster.

Hinch and his staff are safe.

Hinch was an attraction for Harris to come to Detroit, not a liability.

Hey Tigers fans, Braves fan here who is tracking your rebuild for fun, since the new hire. I like to play what would I do. 

I didn’t want to start a thread, but I wanted to give my thoughts on the 2023 40 man roster, and get some feedback from you guys who know these players so much more than I do. 

I have 27 keepers, 18 off the 40 man and IL and 11 added. Short and Cameron are out of options or I’d keep them. 

You guys are deep in pitching. You really only need a couple of Bats that aren’t blocking the kids to shore up the lineup 

I think Benintendi would be a great FA sign. Combined with Riley, Javy, and Tork could give you guys a formidable top 4. 

Id expect some infield prospects to be traded at some point. My guess would be Workman and Manuel Seguera.

Seems to me you have a pretty solid understanding of the players. I don't think they want to give up on Baddoo and Cisneros just yet but it's hard to know what Harris will do.

Actually I’m gonna keep Baddoo. His 2021 season was very well rounded, and he could get OF reps against a tough lefty. 

What happened to him this year? 
 

Cisnero seems to have a few things working against him. He’s 33, set to make 2.5-3M in his last year of arbitration, and his BB rate is increasing. I think they could fill his role with a pitcher who is younger, cheaper, and has option years.

Good, you guys have a lot of young talent, that should be fun to watch. 
 

I hope they trade Schoop and give Lipcius a shot. He’d be a great 9 hole hitter with his OBP skills, to feed Riley and company. 

I'm 100% on board with this. All of it.

I like your chart--gives a good overall perspective of the roster and potential moves.  Personally, I disagree with giving 40-man spots to the following:  Navigato, Joyce, Nieporte, Charlton, Bergner and probably, Hess too.  I don't see any of them as potential big leaguers and/or risks to get selected in the Rule 5.  I'd rather keep Elvin, Garcia and Funkhouser over any of these guys.  DeJesus could go, and I'd be more inclined to keep Cameron over Reyes, and I would tender Harold Castro a contract.  Can plug into a lot of positions, LH bat and probably would be our best pinch-hitter.
