Joakim Soria expected to pitch mostly in seventh inning
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said newly acquired reliever Joakim Soria will probably pitch mostly in the seventh inning, according to the Detroit Free Press.

However, he said Soria could help in the eighth or ninth inning when setup man Joba Chamberlain and closer Joe Nathan need a day off.

"The ability to get left-handed and right-handed hitters out is extremely important," Dombrowski said. "In our situation, where you are trying to win, I think it’s important to be able to do that. You don’t want to be switching every hitter with a different pitcher if you can avoid that. Soria has shown that he can get left-handed and right-handed hitters out very well. I think that’s important."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski acknowledged it's "highly unlikely" reliever Joel Hanrahan will pitch this season. "At this point I would say we're not counting on him at all. It does not sound encouraging," Dombrowski said.

Hanrahan suffered a setback this week in his comeback from Tommy John surgery.

Tigers set to acquire Joakim Soria
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Tigers have traded for Rangers reliever Joakim Soria , according to 97.1 The Ticket. The move was confirmed by CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The Tigers bullpen has struggled this season, collectively posting a 4.41 ERA. That is the fifth worst figure among major-league bullpens. Soria has been solid this season, posting a 2.70 ERA over 33 1/3 innings. It's unclear whether Soria will be used as the closer, or if he'll set up Joe Nathan.
