Tigers in mix for Chad Cordero
The former Nationals closer is drawing interest from a handful of clubs, as our Washington beat writer Bill Ladson explains, but the Tigers have supposedly had multiple conversations with agent Larry Reynolds. It’s a risk, because Cordero is coming off of surgery for a labrum tear last July, but the injury wasn’t as severe as what Freddy Garcia faced. The current prognosis has him potentially ready to return in Spring Training. For a team that has multiple holes to fill for next year, such as the Tigers, it’s a chance worth taking.
