Competition in Tigers' bullpen down to one spot

LAKELAND, Fla. -- When the Tigers signed Joba Chamberlain earlier this week, it served to eliminate some of the questions surrounding the bullpen.

It is no secret that the Detroit Tigers bullpen was the most glaring weakness of a team that was supposed to contend for a World Series. One of the few successes, however, was Joba Chamberlain. Chamberlain is not close to being one of the top relievers in baseball. He is good enough though that he would be able to help a team out, especially one looking to make a deep playoff run...

Last week, rumors circulated that the Indians were still interested in adding one more legitimate late-inning reliever to their bullpen. The options are winding down, so one particular name caught my eye over the weekend.
