Romine is starting at shortstop and batting ninth in Sunday's game against the Twins,

EDGE Analysis

Romine sat on Saturday but he's back in there Sunday. With Jose Iglesias and now JaCoby Jones on the DL, Romine should get fairly regular playing time at shortstop and in center field for the time being.

Romine is not in the lineup Saturday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Romine has started the last three games but has managed just one hit in his last 11 at-bats. He'll head to the bench Saturday as the Tigers go with Dixon Machado at shortstop and Nick Castellanos at third base.

Romine is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rays, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romine is hitless over his last three games (0-for-13) after collecting three consecutive multi-hit games prior, so he'll take a seat to clear his head as JaCoby Jones takes over in center field. He's started four of the last five games for the Tigers, but his bat will need to wake up if he wants to continue to see a healthy amount of at-bats.

Romine will start in center field and bat eighth in the order Sunday against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

It's the second straight start and fourth start in five games for Romine, who earned himself more opportunities following a string of three consecutive two-hit outings last week. Romine has since cooled down over his last two starts with a combined 0-for-9 showing at the dish, but it appears manager Brad Ausmus is at least considering him for a platoon role in center field with JaCoby Jones. He might be worth tracking in AL-only formats.

Romine is batting first and playing second base Thursday for the Tigers against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

After clubbing a grand slam Wednesday, Romine spells veteran Ian Kinsler during the afternoon contest. Perhaps he'll hit enough to plug in around the lineup at several positions in the near future, though this probably is just a brief uptick for the career .243/.298/.300 stick.

Romine went 2-for-3 with a grand slam during Wednesday's 5-3 win over Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Romine has now started three of the past four games and gone 6-for-10 at the dish with four runs, three doubles, a home run and four RBI. It's still a little too early to pounce in the majority of seasonal leagues, but you'll want to take notice in daily contests and consider taking a speculative flier in cavernous mixed or AL-only settings. Just keep your expectations in check because the 31-year-old utility man entered the year with an underwhelming .240/.296/.294 slash line over 884 plate appearances.

Romine is starting in center field and batting eighth in Wednesday's game against the Twins, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

JaCoby Jones has fallen into a slump since Opening Day, going 2-for-14 at the plate with six strikeouts over the last six games. This could open the door to more regular starts in center for Romine moving forward, though Jones will likely get back in the lineup soon to try to turn things around.

Romine will platoon with JaCoby Jones in center field to begin the season, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's not entirely clear at this point what the playing time split will be, as manager Brad Ausmus said Jones will play against lefties and "certain" righties. The organization has said it wants the 23-year-old Jones to play regularly, so Romine will likely be on the smaller side of the platoon. And when J.D. Martinez returns to right field in 3-4 weeks, Tyler Collins and Mikie Mahtook will likely slide into the center field mix, as they're covering for Martinez to begin the year.

Romine could get some regular playing time in center field to begin the season, Anthony French of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Tigers will be without right fielder J.D. Martinez for 3-4 weeks, which means Mikie Mahtook and Tyler Collins, who were penciled into a center field platoon, could get some time in right. If that's the case, Romine and JaCoby Jones are candidates to start in center field. Romine appeared in 22 games there a season ago, though he doesn't offer much with the bat for fantasy purposes.

Romine should once again serve in a super utility role for the Tigers this season, MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Romine brought eight different gloves to spring training, and the Tigers want him to break them all in. Last season, Romine appeared at all four infield positions and all three outfield positions, so he gives the team a lot of versatility off the bench. However, he's a career .240 hitter with very minimal power (six career home runs in seven MLB seasons), so he's not a great fantasy asset.
