Six Ex-Red Sox Could Help Fuel Detroit Tiger Resurgence

As we all know, there are former Red Sox players scattered all across major league baseball. Few teams, however, has so many ex-Carmine Hosers on their 2016 roster as the Detroit Tigers. No fewer than six players with Boston ties could help a re-vamped Tigers team challenge the World Series Champion Royals for the Central Division flag. Here are the players who used to ply their talents at Fenway (or somewhere in the Sox organization): Jose Iglesias, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Mike Aviles, Victor Martinez, Anibal Sanchez and Alex Wilson. Clearly, Iglesias, Martinez and Aviles will have the most impact on the 2016 Tabbys—but look out for Salty and Wilson as well!
