Tigers Designate Adam Everett For Assignment

The Tigers have designated Adam Everett for assignment, according to the club's official Twitter feed. Danny Worth will be recalled from Triple-A Toledo in the veteran shortstop's place.

Everett re-signed his second one-year deal with the Tigers this offseason, following a .238/.288/.325 line in 2009. That limited production may have justified Everett's value when combined with his stellar glove (15.4 career UZR/150 at shortstop), but the 33-year-old has struggled mightily at the plate this season. Everett owns just a .185/.221/.247 line this year through 89 plate appearances. He's been hampered somewhat by a strained hamstring as well.

Worth, 24, was 8-24 (all singles) in 25 plate appearances with the Tigers earlier this year. Through 176 minor league PAs this season, he's hitting .287/.330/.354 while seeing time at third base, shortstop, and second base.

I approve of trying to upgrade the offense, but if this hurts the defense, it’s pointless. We can’t outscore people and pitching isn’t doing so well, so this one move hopefully isn’t the last. Let Avila get more starts behind the plate to help the catcher’s offense as well.
Go Tigers.

The Tigers are so much easier to watch with Guillen Avila and Santiago batting than with Everett and Laird. Defense only goes so far when 33% of your order is batting under 200.

Having Worth up won’t hurt the defense. He made some unbelievable plays when he was up a few weeks ago.

Worth is a great defensive second baseman. I guess we’ll get to see what he can do as a backup shortstop?

Worth played SS as his primary position until last season, I think it was due to Cale Iorg being moved up to AA Erie last year and Brent Dlugach already entrenched as the starting SS at Toledo when Worth moved up a level.

I’d like to see the Padres claim him as a low-risk option. Can’t be much worse than what Cabrera or Zawadzki are doing now.

I wonder if the Twins might grab him for a month with their entire middle infield either injured or terrible. The choices are a lot of Trevor Plouffe and Matt Tolbert with a side order of Brenden “Maybe Everett CAN out-hit me” Harris. They have to be discussing it…

The only thing better than the Tigers finally getting rid of him, would be the Twins adding him. So I’m all for it.
