Tigers Rumors: Orioles, Mariners Interested in Rick Porcello

The Detroit Tigers have been fielding calls on right-hander Rick Porcello, and the Baltimore Orioles and Seattle Mariners are among the teams that have expressed interest in the starter, reports Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports.

After the Tigers re-signed Anibal Sanchez they were left with six starters to fill five spots, also including Porcello, Drew Smyly, Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer and Doug Fister. At this point it’s been speculated that one of Porcello or Smyly will be dealt this winter.

The Orioles have been in the market for starting pitching all offseason. Beyond Porcello, they’ve been tied to Joe Saunders, Kyle Lohse and other veteran free agents.

Seattle recently traded Jason Vargas to the Los Angeles Angels for Kendrys Morales and could be eyeing Porcello to fill the void created by the trade.
