Tigers icon, coach Alan Trammell likes what he's seeing from Spencer Torkelson, Riley Greene

Detroit Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire shuffled his coaching staff for Thursday's doubleheader with the St. Louis Cardinals, bringing Hall of Famer Alan Trammell along to help get his team back on track after Wednesday's historic 19-0 loss.

The move was sparked by third base coach Ramon Santiago, who quietly sneaked out of Comerica Park on Wednesday and traveled to Miami, where he passed his U.S.citizenship test Thursday morning.

First base coach Dave Clark shifted to third base in Santiago's absence, calling Trammell — a special assistant to general manager Al Avila — to return to uniform at first.
