No movement, morning of deadline day
Tigers could really use another hitter, but market isn't promising. Looking unlikely.— DKnobler (@DKnobler) July 31, 2012
As I wrote yesterday, the Tigers are apparently still looking for another right-handed hitter, and were reportedly one of the teams that made an offer on Cubs outfielder Reed Johnson Monday night. He ended up going to the Braves.
Another logical move for the Tigers would be a guy like Mets utilityman Scott Hairston, but he may have raised the asking price with a pair of homers on Monday night. But, as ESPN's Buster Olney mentioned, there may not be a fit between the teams, either.
#Mets continue to say it is unlikely they trade Scott Hairston. Five hours to deadline. We shall see.

Tigers have considered Soriano as the RH bat, but don't think great fit. Also looked at Hairston, but Mets asked for 1 of top 5 prospects.— DKnobler (@DKnobler) July 31, 2012
