Lynn Henning The Detroit News Published 8:39 p.m. UTC May 27, 2018 Triple-A Toledo Who’s hot … ■ Ronny Rodriguez, 3B: Having a blistering May (.366 and a .973 OPS), batting .439 in his last 10 games, and reminding everyone why the Tigers thought they might be getting a steal when they signed Rodriguez as a minor-league free agent and refugee from the Indians system. He was the early favorite to become the Tigers’ next Andrew Romine, all because Rodriguez can play about eight positions.

Redick … and Freckles the ferret.Freckles wasn’t a sports star or even a team mascot. He was a Roanoke County family’s pet ferret that survived a 35-minute soaking in a washing machine. Doughty heard about the ferret’s soapy fate while talking to other parents at his son’s youth league baseball game back in 2007.
