Tigers Interested In Maicer Izturis

The Tigers have interest in trading for Maicer Izturis of the Angels, reports Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports. Izturis is believed to be next on their wishlist after Martin Prado of the Braves.

The Tigers are looking for upgrades at second base, third base, and in the leadoff spot, three roles Izturis has filled at different times in his career. The 31-year-old hit .276/.334/.388 with five homers and nine steals in 494 plate appearances this past season, playing second, third, and shortstop. He is owed $3.8MM in 2012 and can become a free agent after the season.

You said “if Avila is possible it would be nice”.

It’s not.¬† Not even remotely.¬† Ridiculous to suggest that there’s any chance in the world of it happening, as he’s clearly a guy the Tigers are planning on building around.

Just because the Angels gave away their starting catcher for nothing doesn’t mean other teams will do the same.
