The question is if he has enough service time with the Tigers so that he'd fall within super-two in the 2015 offseason if he played with the Sox the rest of this year, and all next year.

It's murky.

He's had 53 big league regular season games, so I'd estimate 60 or so days. Add another 12 playoff games (not sure if they count for service time) and we're around 73 days. Add the days left in the Sox season (53) and he could hit super-two, accelerating his first FA offseason by a year.
