Tigers' center field position is up for grabs

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) Open competition for a starting position has become a rarity in spring training. Yet that is what the Detroit Tigers have in center field as they prepare for this weekend's start of the exhibition season.

"The guys involved know it's open, and it's a performance-based game," manager Brad Ausmus said. "I don't love judging people in spring training, but in this case we're going to have to use it a little bit."

As many as seven players are involved.
