AL Central Rumors: Tigers, Indians, Royals, Twins

Let's round up a handful of afternoon updates on AL Central teams….

  • While the Tigers are talking to free agents, GM Dave Dombrowski says the team isn't involved with the "big, big ones," according to MLB.com's Jason Beck (via Twitter).
  • According to MLB.com's Jordan Bastian (Twitter link), the Indians are in the market for a No. 3 catcher, and could even look to add a backup if they feel like Carlos Santana would be better off exclusively playing at first base and DH.
  • The Royals appear to be one of the teams in pursuit of Omar Infante, who could sign soon, tweets Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe. However, asked about potential interest in Infante, Royals GM Dayton Moore replied that the club was very pleased with the job Emilio Bonifacio did in Kansas City in 2013 (Twitter link via Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune).
  • Twins GM Terry Ryan says his team is keeping an eye on available catchers, but admits the free agent market dried up very quickly, tweets Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com.

I’ve heard so many fans say that Nick C is terrible, maybe even worse than Miggy, at 3B, Igleasis was already on the team, and Kinsler’s D is declining so how did this off season save 30-40 runs for them.

Also, I think you are forgetting to mention he traded an affordable and highly productive SP for barely anything which also hurts the pen by taking the only proven lefty out of it in Smyly.

Looking at the team now vs team last year and the rotation is worse, the bullpen isn’t much better other than at closer, and the offense is worse.
