'I know I belong': Tigers' Christin Stewart eager to put rough rookie season in rearview

Detroit — Typically, Tigers left fielder Christin Stewart exudes tranquility. To say he has the countenance of a Tibetan monk is overstating it, but not by a lot. So to see him flustered and angst-ridden like he was at the end of spring training back in March was somewhat alarming.

Then again, getting just four hits in 30 plate appearances — spring training or not — in such a pivotal time in his career would test even a monk’s reticence.
