AL Central Notes: Tigers, Infante, Pavano, Twins

We took a glimpse at the NL Central earlier this evening and in the interest of equal time, we'll run down the latest out of the AL Central as well..

  • The Tigers have Marlins second baseman Omar Infante on their shopping list, according to Jayson Stark of (via Twitter).  If Miami sells, Stark writes that the former Tiger would be an excellent fit for Detroit.  
  • Carl Pavano could have been a potential trade chip for the Twins but the hurler won't be back in action before the trade deadline, tweets Phil Mackey of 1500 ESPN.  Mackey notes that the Twins acquired Pavano prior to the waiver deadline in 2009 and speculates that they could go that route this year if they choose to move him.
  • Adelyn Santa, the Tigers' most expensive international signing in 2011, is no longer with the team, writes Jim Callis of Baseball America.  The Dominican third baseman signed for $750K last year on July 3 and it's not yet known why he was cut loose by Detroit.
