Tigers Interested In Darren Oliver

Jon Paul Morosi of the Detroit Free Press talked to Darren Oliver's agent, who said the Tigers and Angels are two of four teams interested in his client.  Morosi says the Tigers have also contacted the agents for Trevor Hoffman, Brandon Lyon, David Weathers, and Arthur Rhodes while also expressing interest in Florida's Kevin Gregg.

Oliver, 38, posted a 2.88 ERA in 72 innings.  His strikeout rate wasn't great, but he limited walks and home runs.  He earned $2MM this year.  As a Type A free agent, Oliver comes with the added tax of Detroit's second-round pick in the June '09 draft (assuming the Halos offer arbitration and he declines).

In other Tigers news, MLB.com's Jason Beck says they've yet to contact Freddy Garcia's agent.
