When speaking with Chris Iott of Mlive.com, team president and general manager Dave Dombrowski said that he's looking to add a bat to the Tigers' lineup.
"We're looking for a bat. As you start talking to clubs about trades, which we've been doing a lot of, a lot of the players that are available are DHs, in our mindset. And we think we might have as good a one as anybody."
While Marcus Thames has done the lion's share of the work at DH, Dombrowski is referring to Carlos Guillen, who came of the DL today. The Tigers were rumored to have some interest in Matt Holliday, but that ship has obviously sailed. The club designated the speedy Josh Anderson for assignment earlier today to make room for Guillen.
