Detroit Tigers outfielder Wynton Bernard may be a player that will make a name for himself someday, but according to reports, he will start the 2016 season in Triple-A Toledo.
The Tigers have optioned Wynton Bernard to Triple-A Toledo.

Many thought that it would be Bernard who would back up Anthony Gose in CF until Cameron Maybin was healthy, but apparently it was not in the cards.
Bernard has struggled this spring, hitting only .212 in 33 at bats.
With this move, it looks as if the Tigers will be content with Tyler Collins backing up Gose for the time being.
Nation, did the Tigers make the right decision?
