Washburn could be fit for Tigers

Oh, what a difference a turn in the rotation makes. When Jarrod
Washburn made his last start, baffling the Tigers over seven scoreless
innings, the Mariners looked like a team that could make a run in the
AL West after all. The Mariners didn’t win another game from their
other four starters, and as Washburn prepared for his next start
Tuesday night, rumors heated up about Washburn on the selling block.

The
Tigers had as good of a view as anybody at what Washburn could do, and
as a team in search of a left-handed starter, they couldn’t help but be
impressed. If the Mariners as serious about listening to offers for the
southpaw in his final year of his contract, look for the Tigers to at least inquire about him. The challenge for them is that so many other teams are in
need of solid, consistent starters that Washburn’s value could rise
quickly, especially now that a few contenders had injury concerns
emerge.

The Tigers had an appealing package for the Mariners in
trade talks for J.J. Putz over the winter, including left-handed power
hitting such as Jeff Larish. But these Mariners are a different team
than last fall.
