Tigers get a shortstop


LAS VEGAS — According to ESPN.com, the Detroit Tigers have signed free agent shortstop Adam Everett. That’s no surprise, as earlier today they’d stopped talking trade with the Pirates about Jack Wilson

Wilson said it would have been nice to play for manager Jim Leyland, whose staff includes several former Pirates coaches. “He’s a Hall of Fame manager, for sure,” Wilson said. “That whole staff knows me. That would have many the transition a lot easier.”
