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 Dodgers’ Hiroki Kuroda prove to be out of reach.
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.
