The Tigers are "looking hard" on the trade market for bullpen help, a source who speaks regularly with the team's management tells Danny Knobler of CBS Sports. Closer Jose Valverde has been effective since joining the big league club on April 24th, but they remain in the hunt for help. The Tigers' bullpen has a 3.79 ERA, ninth in the American League. The relievers who comprise the current pen have a 2.04 ERA over the last 30 days, with everyone pitching well aside from Phil Coke. Al Alburquerque had been struggling as well; he was sent down today in favor of Evan Reed.
It's difficult to predict which teams will be selling two months from now, but a week ago I took a shot at projecting some relief trade candidates.
