Tigers option OF Christin Stewart to Toledo, corresponding move to follow

After Tuesday night’s victory over the Milwaukee Brewers, the Detroit Tigers announced that they have optioned outfielder Christin Stewart to their alternate training site in Toledo. The move wasn’t so surprising considering his struggles at the plate, but the question is, who comes up to replace him?

Manager Ron Gardenhire teased us a bit in his post-game press conference. According to Gardenhire, the call-up will be a “fun thing for Tigers fans.” That led to a lot of mock Yasiel Puig enthusiasm on Twitter. However, coming up with the real answer is trickier.
