Tigers rumors: Detroit not looking to trade

The Detroit Tigers continue to look for a right-handed bat to platoon with Andy Dirks in left field, but for the time being they are going to attempt to fill this void with an internal candidate and not a trade or signing, according to James Schmehl of MLive.com.

"We like our team the way it is," Tigers assistant general manager Al Avila said. "We think internally, as we sit today, that's the best option."

Schmehl notes there are a bevy of internal candidates to make the team’s roster as a platoon player, including Brennan Boesch, Jeff Kobernus, Quintin Berry, Don Kelly, Danny Worth, Avisail Garcia and Nick Castellanos. Avila wouldn’t say that one player has a better chance of making the roster over another, as he told reporters that all would be considered for the spot.

The Tigers continue to scout every exhibition game being played right now, according to Schmehl, so if they find their internal candidates to ultimately be unappealing, they could look outside the organization.
