FRONT OFFICE CONSISTENCY: Hall on Tuesday said that the Tigers "have not contacted him to ask for permission" to contact D-Backs manager Kirk Gibson about replacing Tigers manager Jim Leyland. Hall added that Towers is "in the 'same boat' as Gibson after the club decided not to exercise options" for '15-16 in Towers' contract.
