Edgar Renteria has been traded to the Tigers from the Braves in preparation for Detroit to shift former SS Carlos Guillen to first base. This suggests the Braves believe Yunel Escobar can hold down the starting shortstop position, and that the Tigers think the offense of Renteria will offset the fact that they replaced a bad defensive shortstop with a below average defensive shortstop.
