Brandon Inge at second base? Tiger manager Jim Leyland says that Inge will be competing for the job once Spring Training begins. Inge, who will likely lose his job at third base once Miguel Cabrera moves across the diamond from first base is looking for a place to flash some leather for the Tigers. Ryan Raburn and Ramon Santiago had been projected to split time at the position this season.

Inge is certainly the better defensive player, but has never played a Major League game at second base. He’s been a catcher, 3rd baseman, and has even played a couple of games in the outfield. Jim Leyland says “I love Brandon Inge.” He also cited that Inge needs to show that he can turn a double play and that he needs to hit well to stay in the lineup. Inge has played for the Tigers for 11 seasons and is a fan favorite. He took a demotion last year to Toledo to work on his hitting when he started the year way below the Mendoza Line (under .200 batting ave.). He came back to the Tigers late in the 2011 season and improved his hitting. No one knows if Inge can pull this off, but most Tiger fans have learned to not bet against him.
