The Detroit Tigers are currently one of the best teams in baseball, but they still have one desperate need: a shortstop.

They could have benefited from signing Stephen Drew, but their reluctance to give up a draft pick saw him signed by the Sox before the draft.
Check out the analysis of the Tigers’ predicament from the Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo in the video above.
