As the clock ticks toward July 31, the Detroit Tigers have taken some control of the American League Central and are in a good position to make the postseason for the third consecutive year. But that does not mean they are a team without flaws.
Like every contender, major or otherwise, the Tigers have holes that need to be filled. And as we know, the front office will be very aggressive to find any option out there to upgrade the roster to help them get over the World Series hump they tripped over last October.
Also, as with a lot of playoff hopefuls, the bullpen will be a major area of concern this summer. There are always plenty of arms out there to be had, though we will see which teams want to pay the often steep price to acquire them.
Here is the latest news and rumors surrounding the Tigers this trade season. It will be updated when fresh news breaks.
