Hopefully, Al Avila will go out and spend some money to make sure he gets one more outfielder to help fill some gaps and add some depth to this outfield. Avila should look at some names like Corey Dickerson, Curtis Granderson, or Austin Jackson.
Avila passed on Dickerson in the past when they probably should not have and paid for it. Bringing in another left-handed bat for the outfield, a corner outfielder, as well as an extra designated hitter would only be beneficial for this rebuilding team.

It seems like Dickerson could be a cheaper option on a short-term contract that allows Detroit to keep their “every day” guys in the lineup and rotate Dickerson in when needed.
Yep, every Tigers fan should know this name, a former Tigers great during his time here. Granderson is going to be approaching his age forty season, and it seems like he would return to this organization that he once enjoyed being a part of.
Detroit fans may enjoy watching the team lose over 100 games in 2020 if Granderson is back in the lineup, he would draw some more attention to the team simply because of who he was while with the Tigers. Also, he allows depth in the outfield from a veteran player who may have a little bit left in the tank.
Think about it; if Avila does not want to get Granderson or he simply does not want to return to Detroit, they could go sign Austin Jackson instead.
Detroit could bring back the thirty-three-year-old outfielder to play a role for this rebuilding team. Jackson could provide depth for centerfield and possibly some spotty corner outfield but mostly just a veteran presence for the team.
