Player Bio | Stats

A long-haired first round draft pick known more for his defensive range than his bat, Tom Veryzer succeeded Eddie Brinkman at shortstop for the Detroit Tigers and held that job for three seasons until Alan Trammell came along. The Tigers traded Veryzer to the Indians after the 1977 season for outfielder Charlie Spikes.
