According to Jon Paul Morosi of the Detroit Free Press, "the Tigers have had general discussions with the Chicago Cubs about acquiring bullpen help." Detroit’s pen has dealt with all kinds of injuries this year.
Morosi implies that Brandon Inge could be a fit for the Cubs if he could prove a capable center fielder. Seems a long shot though. In any case, Ryan Dempster could be a possible fit for Detroit. He’s set to earn a hefty $5.5MM this year and doesn’t seem to have a clear place on the Cubs’ staff. Neither does Jason Marquis, but he’s not what the Tigers need.
