Odds & Ends: Astros, Tigers, Rays

Some Odds & Ends to reinforce the adage that you can never have enough pitching:

  • Astros will be scouting Freddy Garcia when he throws in Miami on August 5th.  Garcia could become one of the bigger names after the deadline.
  • The Rays continue to look at Brian Fuentes, and feel that pitching may be more of a need than hitting, according to Marc Topkin.  However David Price, Wade Davis, Jeremy Hellickson, and Reid Brignac remain untouchable.  Price could just be the answer.
  • In Detroit, Joel Zumaya has not been the answer to Todd Jones' struggles of late.  As John Paul Morosi puts it, "Fernando Rodney has been the Tigers' most consistent reliever lately. But that could be good news or bad news, depending on your perspective."  The Tigers have been busy at the deadline for the past two years, trading Craig Monroe to the Cubs last year and acquiring Sean Casey the year before.
