Detroit Free Press: Tigers Interested in Jack Wilson (Again)

The Detroit Free Press reports. The Tigers, despite leaving James Skelton off their roster, will also look for a catcher.

That the Tigers would want Wilson is unsurprising. They tried to trade Jair Jurrjens for him in 2007, then sent Jurrjens and Gorkys Hernandez to the Braves for Edgar Renteria. That didn't work out, so now the Tigers are back to square one, and this time, Wilson is actually pretty likely to be available. Maybe Detroit will ask for Ryan Doumit too, but, assuming they won't give up Rick Porcello, they probably don't have the young players to acquire both Doumit and Wilson.
