In Search For An Outfielder – Detroit Tigers


In Search For An Outfielder – Detroit Tigers

So far, we have identified the following outfielders as possible targets for the Mets:

                Atlanta – Reed Johnson
                Arizona – A.J. Pollock
Baltimore – Nolan Reimold
                Boston – Jerry Sands
                Chicago Cubs – Brett Jackson
Chicago White Sox - Dayan Viciedo
Cincinnati – Chris Heisey
                Cleveland – Thomas Neal -
                Colorado – Dexter Fowler
Pittsburgh – Jose Tabata

We now move on to the Detroit Tigers. Who currently have six (6) outfielders on their 40-man:

                Quinton Berry – lefty – pre-ARB -
                Brennan Boesch – lefty – ARB-1 – MLB, 470-AB, 12-54, .240
                Andy Dirks – lefty –  pre-ARB – MLB, 314-AB, .322
                Avisail Garcia – righty – pre-ARB – MLB, 47-AB, .319
                Torii Hunter – righty – $12mil/2013, $14mil/2014 -
                Austin Jackson – righty – ARB-1  MLB, 543-AB, 16-66

Also… Ryan Rayburn plays both second base and LF - $1.7/2013 –

Jackson is your CFer… Dirks is in left…  and now you have Hunter. One of the other guys will either play right or DH and my guess is that Garcia is going to get elevated play time. This might leave Boesch exposed for a trade, but the last thing the Mets need is another left handed outfielder hitting .240.

Mets target:  None
