KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A year ago, the Tigers’ July trading strategy was easy to figure out.

They were going to get a pitcher. There was no doubt they were going to get a pitcher. They scouted every pitcher who could possibly be available, they called the Mariners at least once a day and often twice, and they ended up with Doug Fister.

The need was obvious. The deal made perfect sense, and it worked out even better than the Tigers could have hoped it would.

This year, as baseball people gathered Sunday for the All-Star Futures Game, no one seems anywhere near as certain what the Tigers will do.

They’ve shown some interest in Matt Garza (enough so that the Cubs sent special-assignment scout Dave Littlefield to watch the Tigers’ Double-A Erie team). But Tigers people are suggesting a Garza deal is fairly unlikely.
