The trade winds are blowing and one of the big names that could be moved by the Orioles is Jeremy Guthrie. MLBTradeRumors.com is reporting, via Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports, that the Detroit Tigers are interested in Orioles starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie.
Morosi notes that the Orioles had a Major League scout at Sunday’s game between the Triple-A affiliates of the Tigers and Yankees. Not only did the Tigers’ second-best pitching prospect Andy Oliver start that contest, but the Tigers’ front office instructed manager Phil Nevin to use Charlie Furbush. It appears that the Tigers and Orioles match up well for a Guthrie trade.
Various rumors have reported that the Orioles would want pitching in return for Guthrie, which makes sense for obvious reasons.
