Who Will The Tigers Trade For?

By: Dennis Fithian

We know that the Tigers are trying to make a deal before the end of this month’s trading deadline. Will Detroit make one or two deals? Their biggest need is an upgrade at second base. I would put former Tiger Omar Infante on the top of the list to go get. Infante’s versatility and production is the best of the bunch at this time. All of the arms available on my starters list would cost a lot but I’m sure Detroit will have conversations right up to the deadline on one or two of these guys.
