Tigers claim Matt Stairs off waivers

The Tigers picked up first basemen/outfielder Matt Stairs this afternoon. Stairs, 38, had previously played for the Royals and Rangers this season.

Stairs' 2006 combined stats thusfar: .248 BA, 11 HR, 43 RBI

Hopefully Stairs can pick up some of the slack since the Tigers released Dmitri Young last week. The Tigers' offense needs a spark. Perhaps Matt Stairs will be just that.

To make room on their roster, the Tigers moved Roman Colon from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL.
