Detroit Tigers Rumors

Detroit Tigers RumorsDetroit Tigers Rumors, Need for the Detroit Tigers to launch his help in both rotation and bullpen, it becomes more evident every day. Thursday, the evidence was from Brad Penny and David Purcey in the loss to the Angels – the former battered early before going into a shouting match with Victor Martinez, the second aspect of “Wild Thing” Vaughn in “Major League apart the glaring lack of strikeouts and arrogance.

But is there anyone in the market that could help? Detroit has been looking for a starting pitcher throughout the month, Duane Below the last fight in the No. 5 rotation – a point that produces a win all season. Add in the up and down Penny’s campaign, and the Tigers cannot feel very good about where they are.

This is what Danny CBSSports’ Knobler had to say on a Thursday later, however, about the current trade search of Detroit: “The Tigers appear to have him at the top of your wish list reduction, which began with and now dozens of names can be up to Kuroda, Jeremy Guthrie and Aaron Harang. ”

If that is true, then Guthrie of the Orioles might be the only option.

SI’s Jon Heyman wrote Thursday what many had speculated, that Kuroda would not give up his no-trade clause. Harang and while he has no such clause has made it clear he has no desire to pitch in anywhere but San Diego.

That alone will probably not be enough to prevent the Fathers of trading him, but a complete disregard for Harang in the thinking of the measure could reduce its perceived value – mentally and emotionally fit can trade Harang.

Which brings us back to Guthrie. The Baltimore right-hander is a sad 4.14 in this season, but his 4.33 ERA indicates that some of that is due to be in a horrible team. However, he will not light the world on fire and is more in the way Penny – a veteran who will give you some tickets – one type of notch.

The only variable that might make the most interesting discussions with Baltimore is the right-handed reliever Koji Uehara, who sports a 1.80 ERA and has been an incredible actor bullpen this season. The Baltimore Sun reported that the Tigers are one of a handful of teams interested in services Uehara. A clause in his contract stipulates that if you hit 55 appearances (which is 41 now) and put a 4 million deal struck in 2012 – but that is an affordable price.

The latest numbers from Albuquerque to the arm might make it necessary for bullpen help Detroit even more desperate. If the Tigers could land a package Uehara and Guthrie, who might be willing to pay a little. Guthrie himself probably will not be commanding a ton in return, but Uehara – especially if there are several teams in the bidding – could lead to things.

However, options are dwindling and Baltimore Detroit has two potential pieces hanging there. Do not be surprised if that’s the way the Tigers go.
