Luke Gregerson of the San Diego Padres is drawing interest from at least three or four teams, including the Detroit Tigers, CBSSports’s Jon Heyman reports. The Tigers, who’ve had bullpen questions most of the year, are known to have Gregerson on their radar, and two or three more teams are said to be in heavy pursuit of the righthander who’s 4-5 with a 2.98 ERA and 1.04 WHIP. Gregerson isn’t a free agent until after 2015, giving him significant value. The Padres’ biggest need would be for young starting pitchers as they have a solid, deep group of position players. Rick Porcello might fit the bill there, if the Tigers decide to pay that high a price. Lefty Casey Crosby, currently with a 4.84 ERA in Toledo could be another option, though Detroit almost certainly would have to pair him with another prospect. Gregerson would slot into a setup role, alongside Drew Smyly, giving Detroit more flexibility there. He would not, however, really serve as much of a threat to Joaquin Benoit’s closer job. Gregerson does have three saves this season and had nine last year, but he’s mostly been taking the mound in front of Padres closer Huston Street.
