Interesting note from Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com earlier this afternoon:
Some baseball people who have talked to Tigers are convinced they'll deal for a starting pitcher by opening day—

No word on who the Tigers could be targeting, but they were rumored to be in talks with the Cubs for right-hander Matt Garza during the offseason.
Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Doug Fister and Rick Porcello already have rotation spots locked up, but the Tigers enter exhibition play with their fifth starter situation pretty unsettled. Jacob Turner, Andy Oliver, Drew Smyly, Duane Below, Adam Wilk and Casey Crosby are among the possibilities.
