Tigers Want Short-Term Shortstop

According to Jon Paul Morosi of the Detroit Free Press, the Tigers seek a short-term solution at shortstop.  The Tigers like the idea of using prospect Cale Iorg in 2010.  That means they won't be signing free agents Orlando Cabrera and Rafael Furcal.  The Tigers view the relief market in the way - they like their long-term options (Ryan Perry, for example).

The Tigers have "mild interest" in Khalil Greene, who is signed through 2009.  They don't like his $6.5MM price tag, which might mean Jack Wilson is also too pricey.  John McDonald is a more affordable name on the radar (the pitchers certainly wouldn't mind).

The Tigers have an eye on the Rangers' catchers, Gerald Laird in particular.  It might be tough to make a deal, as the Tigers don't have pitching to spare.
