List of probable closers for all teams

The Boston Situation could get interesting. Don't be suprised if Detroit trades Anderson to Boston for say Hillenbrand.

Anderson could also go to San Diego for pitching prospects, which Detroit has very little of.

Their is no doubt he will be traded. When I look at teams that would be in the hunt Boston and San Diego are the only two that really stand out.

I would draft him regardless. He will be cheap because he is in Detroit. He is healthy so if he stays their for the whole year he will still get 20-30 saves. If he is traded, 30-40 saves.

Detroit wouldn't trade Anderson for Hillebrand. They would rather give prospect Eric Munson a shot to develop at 3rd.

Braden Looper for sure in Florida. He was nails last season 13 for 13 after a shaky beginning.

Danks81 -

It is true that the Tigers are using Munson at 3rd during ST (and during winter ball), but until he learns to hit a off speed pitch or curveball he won't last. Think about it, how many all glove no hit corner infielder's have starting jobs in MLB. The tigers tried it last year with Chris Truby.

This maybe so, but if they traded Anderson for Hillebrand it would further impede Munson's development. He has greater talent than Hillebrand and just needs the opportunity to showcase it. The Tigers will trade Anderson for prospects.

You have to look at it this way;

If Anderson Walks at the end of the season because of free agency, 100% of Zero is Zero

Munson should be focused on hitting and become Detroit's DH. If you are rebuilding are you going to depend on Dean Palmer at DH? It is just like in the business world, successful organizations place people where they are best succeed.

Don't use a band aid if you need stitches.

Personally, Anderson should be delt to San Diego for pitching prospects. They are loaded.

You're right, Anderson will be dealt for prospects. I was contradicting the statement that the Tigers might trade Anderson for Hillebrand for they want to try Munson at 3B. He needs to settle in on a position, and he is athletic enough to handle one once given the chance.

Also, Taking Dombrowski's track record into account, they will receive players with litt tle to zero major league experience when they deal Anderson.
