At the press conference where Prince was introduced, manager Jim Leyland said that Inge “was not a happy camper.” GM Dave Dombrowski went further: “I can understand he wouldn’t be thrilled, but I also think at this point, probably the best thing for him to do – he’s not coming off a big year, the market is pretty well set – probably the best thing is to let him come to spring training, let him play well and let’s see what happens.” Inge was never very happy in 2012, and he even had a parting shot about playing time the day he was released by the Tigers. I hit the ball hard when I was in there.” He hit .197 in 2011 with little power, and his numbers against right-handed pitching were even more miserable, and then in 2012 he went 2-for-20, yet Inge still thought he should have been given more playing time. Inge was a part of the success in that ’06 campaign.
