I've said all along that of the Tigers' young infielders, the best one is Danny Worth. There is no question that is true with the glove. He is an outstanding fielder. When he was in the major leagues briefly last season, I did see some life in his bat. He hasn't hit much in the minor leagues, but wasn't overwhelmed by major league pitching. I think he is a better player than Will Rhymes and Scott Sizemore, yet those two have been getting most of the work at second base this spring.
Even though Tigers' manager Jim Leyland wildly praised Worth Sunday, he still seems to be the odd man out at second base.
Worth was a second-round draft choice. He is 25 years old. Why isn't he getting a real shot?
I can't help but wonder why.
