Tigers Trade Rumors: Barmes, Dotel, Qualls

The Detroit Free Press has a Tigers update for us today.

  • The Tigers are intent on acquiring a backup shortstop.  They recently sent a scout to watch the Rockies' Clint Barmes at Triple A.  Barmes is at .310/.374/.464 in the minors this year.  Perhaps the Tigers envision him as a possible successor to Carlos Guillen at short.
  • Relievers on the radar: Brad Lidge, Chad Qualls, Octavio Dotel, and Kyle FarnsworthEric Gagne does not seem likely right now, and we know Lidge is a long shot.  Farnsworth might make the most sense, as the cost would mainly be money.
  • The article names Craig Monroe plus pitching prospects Dallas Trahern and Jair Jurrjens as players the Tigers would trade.  Despite all that we've read, I'd be surprised if the Royals could get something better than Jurrjens for Dotel.

If the Tigers are intent on getting a back-up shortstop, I think the bluejays would gladly give up Royce Clayton...(Please somebody take Royce Clayton & Josh Towers)

jon miller on espn sunday night baseball just reports that the tigers have put kenny rogers on the dl... they didnt say why

i don't think dayton takes a 30 year old outfielder with 2 AA prospects. also if a choice between ben fransisco or wladimir balentien are on the table..geeeee which one to take?

balentien didn't play today.
