Tigers Rumors: Rogers, Jones, Jenkins

Lynn Henning of the Detroit News has some Tigers tidbits today.

  • The Tigers want to bring Kenny Rogers back, who has said Detroit is the only place he'll play if he doesn't retire. 
  • The team will finally go with Joel Zumaya in the closer role next year, but they'd like Todd Jones around as a backup.  Jones' first pick is Atlanta but it's not known if they're interested.  The mustachioed closer earned $5MM this year.
  • Henning indicates that the acquisition of Edgar Renteria will allow the Tigers to be content with a Marcus Thames/Timo Perez/Ryan Raburn combo in left field, instead of signing Geoff Jenkins.  Maybe the Tigers don't want to appear too desperate for Jenkins, or maybe they're serious.
