GEARING UP FOR WWJ 950'S THAW RADIOTHON: BID IN THE ONLINE AUCTION NOW!  

Report: Tigers Must Consider Upgrades

The Tigers sit just 3.5 games out of first at the break, and should make a run at the post-season, said mlive.com’s Bill Simonson.

The team should trade for a right-handed bat capable of playing a corner outfield spot. Carlos Quentin and Justin Upton would both fit.

Brennan Boesch is a candidate to be moved in a deal for either outfielder. Simonson also mentioned a “minor league pitcher and catcher” could be offered for Upton or Quentin.

This would enable Andy Dirks or Quintin Berry to play everyday. Dirks is still recovering from an Achilles injury. Berry has emerged this season, hitting .299/.388/.417 in 168 plate appearances. Until Berry cools off, he should not be taken out of the lineup, said Simonson.
