Tigers on the trade prowl

Ben Sheets After being swept by lowly Cleveland, the Tigers may be looking to make several moves to help bolster their American League Central title hopes.

CBSSports.com senior writer Scott Miller writes the Tigers were the only team to send a scout solely to watch Dan Haren against the Padres on Friday and the team's also interested in Oakland's Ben Sheets.

Sheets is starting tonight for the A's, but the Tigers have already been checking out the Athletics, reports Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle . The Tigers have been eyeing relievers Michael Wuertz and Craig Breslow.

Wuertz is under control through 2012, under contract through next season with a club option for 2012, while Breslow will be arbitration-eligible for the first time this year.

Sheets may be easier to dump for Oakland thanks to Vin Mazzaro's recent performance. Sheets signed a one-year, $10 million deal before the season. He's 4-8 with a 4.63 ERA in 19 starts.

Jeff Blair of the Globe and Mail notes the Tigers could make a play for Blue Jays' John Buck.
