Detroit Tigers Rumors: Tyler Clippard ‘Would Be Perfect’ Trade Fit for the Bullpen

MLB free agency is underway, but that does not mean that Detroit Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski would pass on a trade if one came along.

Tyler Clippard Earned It

The news that the Nats will have an all-star after all, and that that all-star will be Tyler Clippard, is a little puzzling. Basically because Rafael Soriano is the closer, and he has a 0.97 ERA to boot. Clippard’s ERA (2.03) isn’t quite there, but his other numbers are. He leads the pen in innings (40) and strikeouts (53), and he handles high-leverage eighth-inning situations...

Washington Nationals: should they trade Tyler Clippard?

This may not be the case for long, however, as rumors have been circulating that the team is looking to move one of the trio of arms.
