DETROIT (WXYZ) -- The Detroit TIgers are working out terms with Kirk Gibson and Jack Morris to serve as TV analysts on FOX Sports Detroit for the 2019 season, according to a report from Lynn Henning of The Detroit News.

Gibson, a Tigers TV analyst from 1998-2002, returned to FOX Sports Detroit in 2015, splitting time with Morris and Rod Allen.

The Tigers announced in October that Allen and play-by-play broadcaster Mario Impemba would not return for 2019.

According to Henning's report, a decision still has yet to be made on who will replace Impemba in the play-by-play role, but that one is expected by the end of January.
