Detroit Tigers Rumors: Does Rafael Soriano Make Sense For The Tigers?

While the Minnesota Twins have been the most vocal suitor in pursuit of free-agent reliever Rafael Soriano, Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN believes there's two other teams which present a better fit for the veteran righty -- the Toronto Blue Jays and the Detroit Tigers:

Minnesota is looking for relief help whereever they can find it, and Soriano could be an interesting stopgap who could also serve as a trade chip sometime in July.

However, the Detroit Tigers may provide a more attractive destination for Soriano, perhaps based solely on the team's potential as a championship contender.

Soriano spent the 2014 season with the Washington Nationals, posting a 3.19 ERA with 59 strikeouts in 62 innings pitched (64 appearances).
