The Tigers on Monday sent a "top scout" to SafeCo Field to check out relievers in the game between the Royals and Mariners, according to Ed Price of FanHouse.com.
So who are they looking at?
If we assume they were looking at just Royals relievers (and there's no evidence to suggest that), MLBTradeRumors.com speculates the possibilities include:
- Kyle Farnsworth
- Joakim Soria
- Bruce Chen
Farnsworth has been the subject of trade rumors so far because he's playing better in the last month. Joakim Soria's name hasn't popped up a whole lot but, according to SB Nation's Kansas City's Matt Conner, the Royals shouldn't think about dealing him. This is the first time we've heard Bruce Chen's name come up in rumors.
