The Detroit Tigers have shown interest this off-season in acquiring a right-handed batter to share time with Andy Dirks in left field. Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reported this in early December, floating free agent Scott Hairston as a possibility. Adam Rubin of ESPN nixed that when he tweeted “Hairston will not be a Tiger” later the same day. Still, there’s no sign Detroit has abandoned the pursuit of a right-handed outfielder in general. Unless they dive deep into the bargain bin for one, they can stop looking; Dirks can play full-time.
