Romine is in the lineup and batting ninth for Thursday's game against the Indians.

Competitive Edge Analysis

This will be only Romine's second game in center field this season, as he typically spends most of his time in the infield. The 30-year-old is just 1-for-13 in limited playing time this season and has been used primarily as a pinch hitter and defensive replacement.

Romine once again appeared as a defensive replacement when he entered Wednesday's game against the Royals.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Romine has made seven appearances this season, but has started just once and has just five at bats total in those seven. He's 1-for-5 with one walk and two strikeouts. His value is clearly on the field, not at the dish.

Romine and Mike Aviles will both perform as super-utility players for the Tigers this season.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Last season, Romine backed up at shortstop, was a late-inning replacement at third and occasionally spelled off at second. He hit .255 in 2015 with 204 plate appearances in 109 games. Manager Brad Ausmus will need to find at bats for both men this season, rather than just one utility infielder. Romine's value, as minor as it was in 2015, takes a hit for 2016 with this news.

Romine agreed to a one-year, $900,000 contract with the Tigers on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The extent of Romine's value to the Tigers comes in the form of his defense and versatility in the infield. He hit .255/.307/.315 in 203 plate appearances with the Tigers last year, and owns a .580 OPS for his major league career. Look for the 30-year-old to continue in a utility role in 2016, though he may see fewer opportunities to start with Mike Aviles now on the roster.

Romine left Friday's game with right groin soreness.

Competitive Edge Analysis

While the Tigers are listing Romine as day-to-day, his status for the remainder of the weekend is uncertain. The team is also down Jose Iglesias (finger), which means Dixon Machado and Josh Wilson are the only healthy options left at short.

Romine went 3-for-4 with an RBI and run scored in Thursday's 7-5 loss to the Indians.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Romine has received the lion's share of playing time at shortstop in Jose Iglesias' absence, starting five of Detroit's last six games. Romine is solid defensively but has little offensive upside; he's better off being used as a utilityman than playing every day.

Romine is out of the lineup Thursday against the White Sox.

Romine has worked his way into the starting lineup for the last five games, but will receive a day off for the Thursday afternoon contest. Miguel Cabrera will return to first base following a day off, while Nick Castellanos resumes his regular role at the hot corner.
