Tigers are Interested In Coco Crisp and Pitching

5

Per MLBTR: The Tigers are interested in free agent outfielder Coco Crisp, according to Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com. The team has a projected outfield of Delmon Young, Austin Jackson and Brennan Boesch, but seems to be considering additions. The switch-hitting Crisp led the American League with 49 stolen bases in 2011, hitting .264/.314/.379 with 27 doubles as Oakland's center fielder. The Tigers could trade an outfielder, most likely Young, if they sign a free agent such as Crisp. The California native seems to prefer West Coast teams, but explained in September that he’s also looking to play on a winner and find a good "financial situation" for himself. The A’s remain interested in re-signing him. The Tigers still want to round out their rotation with a starting pitcher and a trade is more likely than a signing, according to Knobler. The team, which announced its deal with Ramon Santiago earlier today, could still add another second baseman, Knobler writes. Alternatively, they could pair Santiago with utility player Ryan Raburn at second.
