MLB Winter Meetings 2015: Tigers Looking at Adding a Big Name OF

UPDATE 6:40pm – The threat of the Tigers adding one of the big name outfielders is over according to GM Al Avila.

NASHVILLE – The 2015 MLB Winter Meetings are in high gear in Nashville, and one of the teams the Indians have to contend with in the AL Central are already looking to reload.

After a down season in 2015, word is the Tigers are looking at two possible outfielders who are both free agents, Yoenis Cespedes and Alex Gordon, this according to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman.

Detroit, who last season stumbled to an 74-87 season, traded Cespedes to the Mets after they felt their season was all but over.

Before they moved him, he hit .293 with 18 homers and 61 RBI. As for Gordon, who won a World Series ring with the Royals last year, he hit .271 with 13 homers and 48 RBI in 104 games.

There’s no doubt that Detroit wants to make a splash at these meetings, and are willing to pay big to do it.
