Who's Chris Shelton?

A few years ago, the Tigers broke camp with a 1B named Chris Shelton who, as I wrote, hit 9 homers in his first 13 games. But the streak ended in late April and by midsummer he was back in the minor leagues. He bounced back and forth that season and racked up 100 more games, during which he managed only 7 homers. He has not been a significant major leaguer since, obviously.
