The Tigers have Atlanta's Martin Prado at the top of their trade wish list. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports, the Tigers have looked into the Angels' Maicer Izturis as a possibility if they are not able to acquire Prado.
The Tigers are looking to upgrade 2nd and 3rd base as well as their leadoff spot, all which Izturis has experience at.
The Angels do not plan to use Izturis in an everyday role this upcoming season as they are looking for an upgrade at the hot corner. The Angels have recently been connected to Aramis Ramirez.
The 31-year-old hit .276 with 5 home runs in 2011. Izturis is wrapping up a three-year deal where he will make $3.8mm in 2012.
