Brent Clevlen Gets The Call

Is there any reason to call up a Double A outfielder who's hitting .224/.307/.350?  Brent Clevlen joins the Tigers today, in the midst of his best month with the Erie SeaWolves (a .776 OPS in July).

One possibility is that a trading partner wanted the kid showcased and the Tigers obliged.  Entering this season, Clevlen was ranked Detroit's second-best position player behind Cameron Maybin.

Clevlen is a 22 year-old right fielder with above average power potential, according to Baseball America.  Back on July 17th, Jon Paul Morosi of the Detroit Free Press mentioned that the Tigers could offer a package of Clevlen, Jair Jurrjens, and Humberto Sanchez for Alfonso Soriano.

Yankees are having doubts about taking on Abreu's salary

For Lowell or Loretta? Pedroia up? The Red Sox seem to be setting up a nice group of power arms at the back end of the bullpen...

I dont know he said it would be a three or 4 way deal.......I heard the Cubs
