MLB Trade Rumors: Tigers Interested in Orioles' Guthrie, Padres' Harang

Guthrie spent most of the season getting no run support before falling on hard times as of late.

The Tigers are hunting for starting pitching as aggressively as any team in baseball, and they’re looking at Baltimore’s Jeremy Guthrie and San Diego’s Aaron Harang as fallback options if Colorado’s Ubaldo Jimenez and the DodgersHiroki Kuroda prove to be out of reach.

Detroit is in need of a starter after shifting Phil Coke back to the pen. Charlie Furbush replaced him in the rotation, but he’s struggled mightily (to say the least) in his two starts to date.

FOXSports.com’s Jon Paul Morosi has the Guthrie news, putting him third on the Tigers’ list of potential pitching acquisitions.  Morosi says the Orioles recently had a scout watching Detroit’s Triple-A affiliate.  Guthrie is 3-13 with a 4.45 ERA this season, and has struggled somewhat lately after having maintained an ERA in the mid-3's for most of the season.

SI.com’s Jon Heyman says both the Tigers and Indians have made calls on Harang, who has pitched 13 scoreless innings in two starts since coming off the DL. He’s 7-3 with a 3.19 ERA in 15 starts for the Padres.

The Tigers are currently a half-game back of the Indians in the AL Central.
