The Indians continue to shop close Chris Perez. Could the Tigers be a fit?
Chicago White Sox: Left-Handed Hitting Bench Player
The Chicago White Sox biggest focus right now may be shopping right-hander Gavin Floyd, but as far as remaining needs, the team is reportedly looking for a left-handed hitter (h/t Danny Knobler via Twitter).
Alejandro De Aza and Adam Dunn are the only left-handed hitting starters, while Dewayne Wise and Jordan Danks are options off the bench.
Cleveland Indians: Trade Partners for Justin Masterson and Chris Perez
The Cleveland Indians have had a strange offseason, as they've actively shopped Justin Masterson and Chris Perez and traded Shin-Soo Choo to the Reds. They have also signed Nick Swisher and Mark Reynolds among others.
According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the team is looking for short-term success while building long term, and with Masterson and Perez set to hit free agency at the end of 2014, moving them now could maximize their value.
Detroit Tigers: Closer?
Until the season starts, I still think the Detroit Tigers will be open to the idea of adding a proven arm to fill their vacant closer's role if the price is right.
The team has internal options, with flame-throwing prospect Bruce Rondon the front-runner for a job, but for a team looking to win a title they'd no doubt feel more comfortable with a lockdown veteran like Chris Perez or Rafael Soriano taking the ball in the ninth.
Kansas City Royals: Right Field
The Kansas City Royals had their right fielder of the future in Wil Myers, but he was dealt to the Rays in the move that landed them James Shields.
Incumbent Jeff Francoeur (.235 BA, .665 OPS) struggled through last season, and is a free agent at season's end, so the team could look to add another option to the mix in right field this offseason.
Minnesota Twins: More Starting Pitching Depth
The Minnesota Twins got the worst ERA in the American League out of their starting rotation last season at 5.40, and they've already added Vance Worley, Kevin Correia, Mike Pelfrey and Rich Harden this offseason in an attempt to rectify the situation.
That said, they may not be done adding pitching depth, according to La Velle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, and Brett Myers, Joe Saunders and Shaun Marcum remain as potential targets.
