Pitching help for Tigers?
July 24, 2011 - Burt Angeli
Atlanta Braves pitcher Derek Lowe joining the Detroit Tigers’ staff? There’s a possibility according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe:
“The Tigers have at least some interest in the Michigan native, but would have to assume the $6 million remaining this year and $12 million next year. They’re trying desperately to fill their No. 5 role, and the Braves, who have a plethora of pitching, would be willing to take on money.
‘But do the Tigers have anyone who could make an impact offensively for the Braves? The Tigers may also be eyeing, on a much smaller scale, a lefthander such as Bruce Chen. The Tigers have also kicked the tires on (Tampa Bay’s James) Shields and Dodgers righty Hiroki Kuroda.”
