DETROIT (AP) The end of Dave Dombrowski's tenure in Detroit came suddenly and unexpectedly - like so many of the moves he made to build the Tigers into an American League powerhouse.

Dombrowski is out after nearly 14 seasons as president and general manager of the Tigers. The four-time Central Division champions announced the move Tuesday, catching people at Comerica Park and beyond by surprise. Dombrowski was fresh off making several big trades last week, and his exit set off rampant speculation about where he would next work.

Dombrowski was in the last season of his contract and overseeing a team stuck below .500, so there was already speculation about whether he'd be back in 2016. But his abrupt exit - accompanied by a somewhat cryptic explanation from the team - was unusual.
