Paul: Tigers have talked to Ryan Raburn about a return to Detroit

The Detroit Tigers have been in the market for an additional bat to sure up the left field position, and according to Tony Paul of the Detroit News, the team has spoken to former Tigers utility player, Ryan Raburn.

If signed, Raburn, who bats right-handed, would likely platoon in left field with Anthony Gose, who is a left-handed hitter.

Paul seems to think the Tigers will try and sign a utility-type player for less money rather than going after a player like Yoenis Cespedes or Justin Upton, who would command a bigger deal.

In 2015, Raburn batted .301 with eight home runs and 29 RBIs in 82 games with the Cleveland Indians.

Before going to Cleveland, the 34-year-old Raburn batted .256 with 54 home runs and 216 RBIs in seven seasons with the Tigers.

What do you think Nation, should the Tigers consider bringing back Raburn, or should they break the bank and go after a big name?
