The Tigers added Johnny Damon for his left-handed bat and veteran skills in the outfield.
They’ve already gotten more than that and the season hasn’t even started yet.
“I never knew that he had such an engaging personality in the clubhouse,” Tigers president and general manager Dave Dombrowski said this week before the team traveled to Milwaukee for two exhibition games. “He’s a very upbeat person with a vibrant personality that is good for our club.
“We’re a relatively quiet group, so he brings some life along with being a good player that we needed.”
Damon says he’s enthusiastic about being a Tiger.
