Former Detroit Tigers coach Omar Vizquel lands managerial job

For the past four seasons, 11-time Gold Glove winner Omar Vizquel served as the first base coach for the Detroit Tigers. When Tigers GM Al Avila announced that Brad Ausmus would not return as manager in 2018, Vizquel was one of the options to take his place.

Though Vizquel did get an interview for the Tigers managerial vacancy, Avila decided that former Minnesota Twins skipper Ron Gardenhire was the best candidate.

But just because Omar is no longer in the Tigers organization, that does not mean he will not be coaching in 2018. In fact, according to reports, Vizquel has been named the manager of the Winston-Salem Dash, the Chicago White Sox Class A (Advanced) minor league team that plays in the Carolina League.

Though Omar will be missed in Detroit, we certainly wish him the best as he continues his career in baseball.

Section 313, Seat No. 17- Detroit Tigers Offseason Blueprint: Part 2

Here we are again projecting the offseason for the Detroit Tigers. What we have been looking at is our view of the route we see the Tigers going, and the one that makes the most sense moving forward.

It should be stated again:

The Tigers 2018 season is not going to be the prettiest baseball, not like the expected championship runs of the last decade. But, if we understand that the team will not be what we’ve become accustomed to, and “trust the process,” it can pay off in the long run.

The goal of the 2018 season for the Tigers is simply this: save money by suffering through a season of a couple inflated contracts and get your younger players the most experience possible.

In order to achieve this goal, there are certain off season moves the Tigers should make. We’ll handle them in four sections: cuts to be made, free agents to sign, trades to make, and projecting the 25-man roster. Each section will be released on subsequent Fridays for the next four weeks.

If need to catch up the previous articles, you can read all about the cuts the Tigers need to make here.
