Tigers shopping Curtis Granderson?

The Detroit News is reporting that the Tigers may shop outfielder Curtis Granderson this offseason. Granderson put up a career high 30 home runs this season, but posted his lowest power numbers since he became an everyday player in 2006.

Granderson could be a very desirable trade chip this offseason. His ability to play center as well as hit at the top of the order should draw interest from several teams. The Tigers 2009 collapse puts the front office in a position to make a move, possibly for an infielder or a pitcher. 

Some teams that could inquire about Granderson include the Brewers, Cubs, and Braves

If the Brewers offered a package around JJ Hardy, they might be able to work out a deal. That way the Brewers can let Mike Cameron walk, collecting the draft picks on him signing elsewhere. 

Expect to see the Cubs inquire about Granderson. They are in dire need of a speedy, lefty center fielder, and have the chips to make a move. 

Who else will look into trading for Granderson?

Trading Granderson is no certainty, though. Moving Granderson does create a hole in center field, which would likely be filled by Ryan Raburn, who put up good numbers in 113 games this season.
