Tigers Have Not Expressed Interest In Damon

4:29pm: Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports tweets that the Tigers aren't going to sign another outfielder. As he says, they're counting on Austin Jackson.

2:07pm: Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski told Beck through a team spokesperson that the Tigers have not expressed interest in Damon. If the Braves aren't likely to sign Damon, where will he end up?

8:35am: Now that they've found a closer, the Tigers are looking for offense and Johnny Damon is one of the players they're considering, according to MLB.com's Jason Beck. The Tigers, who were first connected to Damon last night, have had preliminary talks with agent Scott Boras about Damon.

As Beck notes, the Tigers have an uncertain amount of payroll flexibility at this point, but it doesn't look like Damon will require a long-term commitment. The Braves are interested, but there are cheap corner outfield options out there, which limit Boras' leverage.
