Tigers release Alex Gonzalez
The 37-year-old Gonzalez started the opener against the Kansas City Royals and delivered the winning hit in the ninth inning but ended up going just 5-for-30 the first three weeks of the season.
Andrew Romine was in Sunday’s starting lineup against the Los Angeles Angels at shortstop.
The Tigers traded for Gonzalez and Romine in the offseason. Gonzalez batted just .177 in 113 at-bats with the Milwaukee Brewers last year.
