GM says Tigers 'a long shot' to re-sign Rodney

After shedding payroll in the form of Curtis Granderson and Edwin Jackson yesterday, general manager Dave Dombrowski described the Tigers’ chances of re-signing closer Fernando Rodney as “a long shot.”
Rodney’s primary setup man, Brandon Lyon, somehow snookered the Astros into giving him a three-year, $15 million deal last night, and Dombrowski indicated that Rodney has also received several multi-year offers that the Tigers “are not prepared to” match. Philadelphia has been linked to Rodney since early last month, so they’re likely one of the teams making a serious run at him.
