Boesch is only making half a mil, and is only eligible for arbitration in 2013, so the Tigers have 2 years to take a good look at him. I don't think he'll need that, and I'd be willing to bet he'll end up a mid to high .200's guy with 25 HR or so in the next few years. He's locked up until 2016.
Neither Boesch nor Young are good enough hitters to move to full-time DH, and we're going to have a backlog at that position when Victor Martinez comes back anyway. Perhaps move Young before the deadline as a one year rental for someone, but what do you do with Jackson and Berry in the meantime?
