That didn’t take long. The Marlins and Padres have shown interest in ex-Tiger Jacque Jones, according to MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro. It continues a long-running interest from the Marlins in Jones, whom they nearly traded for last summer. From the story:
Jones was designated for assignment on Monday. If the Marlins move in
quickly on the outfielder, a deal could be worked out in the next day
The Padres, according to a second source, also have inquired about Jones.
It’s hard to envision anyone trading for Jones with his salary when they could wait a while and grab him as a free agent for the minimum, leaving the Tigers to pick up the rest.
- Jacque Jones designated for assignment.
- Matt Joyce called up from Toledo and is in RF.
- Sheffield is batting sixth and playing in LF, the latter per his request.
- Carlos Guillen will hit third.
- Magglio is still batting cleanup, but is DHing again today and will probably do that part-time while splitting time in RF.

- Polanco, 2B
- Guillen, 3B
- Ordonez, DH
- Cabrera, 1B
- Sheffield, LF
- Joyce, RF
