Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski spoke to reporters today; here's the latest from John Lowe of the Detroit Free Press on Twitter.
- It's very unlikely free agents Magglio Ordonez and Carlos Guillen will be back next year. Reliever Joel Zumaya would be on a minor league deal if he returns.
- Victor Martinez will be the Tigers' full-time designated hitter next year, so Dombrowski will seek a back-up catcher for Alex Avila.
- Dombrowski sees the arbitration eligible Delmon Young as his left fielder in 2012 on a one-year deal. Matt Swartz projects Young to earn $6.3MM next year through the arbitration process.
- "In so many words, Dombrowski ruled out any run at [Jose] Reyes," tweets Lowe.
- Most likely, Jacob Turner and other youngsters will compete for the Tigers' fifth starter job next spring, with a veteran on board for projection, tweets MLB.com's Jason Beck.
