Tigers Set Sights On Derrick Turnbow

Things have been quiet since the winter meetings have ended but the Tigers have been rumored to have talked with Derrick Turnbow.  The right hander was the Brewers closer in 2005 (when he was very good) and 2006 (when he wasn’t) before being relegated to a middle relief role in 2007 (when he was okay) but he was out because of a bad shoulder for most of 2008.

A couple of other teams have been interested, but it looks like at least for now, no team has been willing to give him a major league contract.  This report talks about him having a throwing session in January, but by then the cat will be out of the bag and you wonder if it’d make sense to pull the trigger now before the rest of the league sees what he can do.
