Tigers, Rangers interested in Torii Hunter

13 Comments

Everyone wants Torii Hunter, it seems. Danny Knobler reports that the Tigers are “very interested,” however:

The Tigers, who just played in the World Series, are very interested in Hunter, according to sources. The Rangers, who played in the two World Series before that, are interested, too.

Knobler says that Hunter wants to sign quickly and that his top goal is winning a World Series.  Both Detroit and Texas would be good candidates for that.

The Braves claimed lefty reliever Grant Dayton off waivers from the Dodgers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Dayton, 29, underwent Tommy John surgery back in August and is almost certainly out for the entire 2018 season. The Braves, obviously, are making a longer-term play here by acquiring him, as he is under team control through 2022.

Over parts of two seasons in the majors, Dayton has a 3.42 career ERA with 59 strikeouts and 18 walks in 50 innings.
