Tigers Could Trade Maroth

One team that may have a surplus of starters that's not getting a lot of press for it is the Tigers. Dave Dombrowski carefully seemed to indicate that 29 year-old southpaw starter Mike Maroth could be available.

Maroth pitches to contact and could be decent in front of a good defense.  He only makes about $3 mil and has two seasons left before free agency.  He'd probably come a lot cheaper than Kei Igawa, who might be comparable.  Maroth had surgery in June to remove bone chips in his elbow.  He wasn't quite right upon his September return and didn't make the postseason roster.

As far as lefty relievers go, Dombrowski chatted with Florida about Renyel Pinto.  They also might like C.J. Wilson and Ron Mahay of Texas.
