Could Tigers Trade For An Atlanta Reliever?

7:21pm: David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution confirms Detroit's interest in the Braves' Out Of Options Four.  DOB can envision a scenario where the Braves carry three of the four and trade one.

3:23pm: Jon Paul Morosi of the Detroit Free Press speculates that the Tigers and Braves may match up well for a trade.  Morosi notes four out of options relievers for Atlanta: Blaine Boyer, Chris Resop, Royce Ring, and Tyler Yates.  He also mentions "frequent trade discussions" in recent years between the two clubs.

ESPN's Jayson Stark wrote yesterday that the Tigers "would like to add a big-time set-up arm."   Stark said nothing was imminent but the Tigers have been active in trade discussions.  The above Braves relievers don't fit the "big-time" criteria; Atlanta's four would make sense for Philly if they weren't in the same division. 

My list of more highly regarded guys who might be available: Brian Fuentes, Damaso Marte, Joe Nathan, Jamie Walker, Chad Bradford, Huston Street, Alan Embree, Kevin Gregg, Jon Rauch, and Chad Cordero.  Any others come to mind?
