Throughout the offseason, we’ll be taking a look at the top news and rumors from the Hot Stove League. THE RUMOR: The Tigers, in desperate need of another starting pitcher, are interested in Yovani Gallardo.REPORTED BY: ESPN’s Buster Olney THE DETAILS: After mi sing the playoffs for the first time since 2010, Detroit looks like a team destined to make a large roster overhaul in an attempt to once again compete with the World Series champion Royals. Gallardo will likely to be one of many middle-tier starting pitchers linked to the Tigersas they look to replace Alfredo Simon (free agency) and po sibly Daniel Norris (health).LAST SEASON: After rejecting his one-year qualifying offer worth $15.88 million, Gallardo became a top 10 starting pitcher on the free-agent market after finishing last season 13-11 with a 3.42 ERA with the Aaron Altherr Jersey Rangers.OUR TAKE: The Tigers need more than just Gallardo to shore up their shaky rotation, but the former Ranger and Brewer could come in and be a solid Dave Hollins Jersey No. 3. Justin Verlander returned to his old form late last seasonand Anibal Sanchez should slide back into the No. 2 spot if he’s healthy. Unfortunately for Tigers fans, there is no one else in the current rotation to feel confident about.MLB FREE AGENTS: C| 1B| 2B| SS| 3B | OF
