Jon Paul Morosi reports that the Tigers are interested in Matt Garza, though there are no serious talks yet.
This is not the first time they’ve been here. Back in January David Kaplan of CSNChicago.com reported that the two teams were “down the road in talks” regarding Garza and nothing came of it.
Garza is 4-7 on the year with a 4.32 ERA. The Tigers could use him. But then again, a ton of other teams could too.
Major League Baseball just announced the umpires for the World Series.
The crew chief will be Gerry Davis. Davis was worked 136 career Postseason games, which are the most of any umpire in Major League Baseball history. This is his sixth World Series overall and third time as crew chief.
Joining Davis will be Phil Cuzzi, Laz Diaz, Dan Iassogna, Bill Miller, Paul Nauert and Mark Wegner. Wegner will serve as the replay official for Games One and Two, after which he will join the on-field crew as the left field umpire for Game Three. Cuzzi will be the Replay Official from Game Three through the conclusion of the World Series. Cuzzi will not be a field umpire for any of the games.
