    Detroit Tigers restructure front office

    Detroit — General manager Al Avila announced Tuesday a significant restructuring of the Tigers front office and opened a search for new leadership of the club’s player development branch.

     “We’re looking to be a more progressive organization,” he said. “We’ve been a very traditional organization as far as our way of teaching. And that will stay. We will not lose our old-school ways by any means. But we want to be more progressive.

    “We want to start using more technology and more science. We want to be able to start writing up plans for pitchers and hitters across the board.”

    ► David Chadd, who has worked with Avila since 2003 and has been his top lieutenant since he replaced Dave Dombrowski in 2015, will remain vice president and assistant general manager — but he will shift his focus more to player development and scouting.

    He will be based now out of his home in Wichita, Kansas, but spending a lot of time in Lakeland and with the club’s minor-league affiliates.
