Romine went 2-for-3 with a double, one stolen base and one RBI in Saturday's 3-2 win over Toronto. He was also hit by a pitch.

EDGE Analysis

Romine is a defensive replacement who got a rare start at short and made the most of it. His .222/.310/.270 slash line doesn't inspire confidence in fantasy, but he suits the Tigers just fine between the chalk lines.

Romine came on in relief in the eighth inning Saturday against the Royals. He faced four batters in 0.2 innings of work and walked two.

EDGE Analysis

And that's what you call versatile. Romine has been boy Friday for the Tigers this season and has at least five-game qualifications at 1B, SS, 3B and OF. But the pitching appearance isn't new -- he threw one inning of work in 2014, too. Romine has gotten regular playing time this past week and has gone 4-for-12 with one RBI, but doesn't typically produce enough to be a worthy play.

Romine is 2-for-8 with two runs and an RBI in the month of June.

EDGE Analysis

Romine's performance at the plate has been rather forgettable this season, as he's now just 5-for-33 with five walks and 11 strikeouts. His appearances have been limited to pinch hitting and rare starts if a player needs a day to rest. Due to his dismal slash line of .152/.263/.212, there's no reason to believe Romine will see an increase in time on the field anytime soon.

Romine is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Romine has been struggling mightily all season, collecting just one hit in 16 at-bats. He went 0-for-3 with a walk and a RBI on Tuesday night, but will make way for Jose Iglesias again on Wednesday at shortstop.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
