Top arms out of reach for D-Backs, but Kenta Maeda could be option
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart has made it clear he would like to improve the team's starting rotation, according to The Arizona Republic. Stewart could begin getting closer to his goal as early as this week at the general manager's meetings.

"I don't know if we get it accomplished this week," Stewart said, "but by the time we start the season I'd really like to try to improve our starting rotation.

"If we can clearly improve our team, then I'm not hesitant to make a trade. I don't know that we will or that we won't. What I know is that there's some clubs out there that we've had some conversations with that includes pitching, pretty good pitching. It's a matter of if we can make it happen or not."

Stewart doesn't think the Diamondbacks can afford to pursue free-agent starting pitchers Max Scherzer, Jon Lester, James Shields. However, Arizona might be in the mix for Japanese right-hander Kenta Maeda, if the Hiroshima Carp make him available through the posting system.

"I think that he's going to be a great addition to the club that's going to be able to get his services," Stewart said. "We definitely have interest in him."

Options on RHP Scherzer, DH Martinez among Tigers moves
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Tigers have announced, as expected, that they have made $15.3 million qualifying offers to right-hander Max Scherzer and 2014 MVP candidate Victor Martinez. They will become free agents if the offers are rejected.

Those were among a slew of moves made by the Tigers. Utility man Don Kelly and right-hander Evan Reed have been outrighted off their 40-man roster while they have promoted outfield Wynton Bernard .

Max Scherzer knocked around Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer allowed five runs Thursday against the Orioles.

Scherzer gave up five runs on seven hits over 7 1/3 innings. The trouble started early for Scherzer. After a leadoff single started things off, Scherzer gave up a two-run homer against Nelson Cruz in the first inning. Nick Markakis would single in another run in the second inning, putting Scherzer behind 3-2. He was then able to settle in over the next four frames, not giving up any runs. A J.J. Hardy homer to start the seventh broke that streak. Scherzer would give up a double in the eighth before being pulled. That run would come around to score, and was charged to Scherzer. Scherzer was tagged with the loss.
