5 potential Detroit Tigers trade targets

#1- Tommy Hunter 

 

 

This is the move the Tigers need to make- and make soon- even before the trade deadline. First off, yes, Tommy Hunter is struggling right now, posting a current 5.23 ERA. However, he is a hard thrower and a change of scenery can help. The Tigers probably wouldn’t have to give up much for him because of his recent struggles, but with guys like Shane Green and Alfredo Simon struggling to go past 7 innings, Hunter would be a great fit to relive in the 7th, or even as a set up man in the 8th.  Overall, this trade makes the most sense, and it would more than likely be a low-risk, high reward situation.
