Tigers Interested In Freddy Garcia

Who said the Tigers were sellers?  According to Jon Paul Morosi, they've contacted Freddy Garcia's agent to express interest.  At 6.5 games out, the Tigers have roughly a 15% chance at making the playoffs (not unlike the Mets).

Garcia is coming back from shoulder surgery, and if all goes according to plan he could reach a Major League mound in late August.  It's important that he makes it before September so that he's playoff-eligible.  Morosi notes that Detroit is a good fit for Garcia, given his friendship with Carlos Guillen and the team's Venezuelan leanings.

On May 16th, Buster Olney said at least seven teams were monitoring Garcia: the Mets, Red Sox, Braves, Yankees, White Sox, Rangers, and Mariners.  The Indians also had past interest.  We can probably take the Ms off the list now.
