Tigers | Not looking for closer

The Detroit Tigers are not searching for a closer on the trade market thanks to the success of RP Joaquin Benoit. Instead, they're looking for a pitcher to bolster their bullpen in the seventh or eighth innings. The Tigers don't have many options, though, and they're no longer looking at Philadelphia Phillies RP Jonathan Papelbon. Detroit has already been shot down on Baltimore Orioles RP Francisco Rodriguez, Miami Marlins RP Steve Cishek, Minnesota Twins RP Glen Perkins and Seattle Mariners RP Oliver Perez.

Fantasy Tip: This cements Benoit's value as Detroit's unquestioned closer, and he is in no current danger of getting booted from the ninth.
