Apparantly Wil Ledezma isn’t being slated as the Tigers’s option as the left handed specialist coming out of the bullpen. Andrew Miller doesn’t look like he’s in line for the job either and it looks like both he and Ledezma are being looked upon to bolster the Tigers’ deep rotation or are trade bait. Regardless, it sounds like the Tigers are looking for an experienced lefty to replace Jamie Walker in the bullpen.
And with the Winter Meetings comes the Rule 5 draft. The Tigers have done well in past years in the rule five draft and have picked up guys like Wil Ledezma (who I’m still high on) and Chris Shelton. Detroit Tigers Weblog breaks down the details on the draft and talks about two players the Tigers might be interested in.
