According to Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN out of Minneapolis, the Tigers are reportedly interested in free agent pitcher Ervin Santana.

The 30-year old right hander has spent 9 seasons in the Majors (mostly with the LA Angels) sporting a 4.19 career ERA and 1.281 WHIP. Last season with the Royals was also a bounce back of sorts for Santana as he brought his ERA down to 3.24 from the 5.16 the previous season. He also brought his his WHIP down from 1.270 to 1.142 in 211.0 innings pitched.
However if the Tigers were to sign Santana they would be required to give up a draft pick given the fact that he turned down a $14.1 million qualifying offer from the Royals this offseason.
