DH Victor Martinez resigned by Detroit

RHP Joba Chamberlain resigned by Detroit

Biggest addition: Yoenis Cespedes 

Cespedes is a career .263 hitter, but Cespedes will grow in Detroit to become a better hitter. There’s no doubt you can’t ignore the fact that Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez have an effect on players in the lineup and Cespedes has been getting along with Miguel and V-Mart.

Cespedes defense is just as impressive as his powerful bat he boasts a .982 fielding pct through his career.
