Tigers rumors: Brennan Boesch trade bait at winter meetings?

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

Detroit may look to deal the corner outfielder next week in Nashville.

Detroit Tigers outfielder Brennan Boesch is drawing interest from several clubs and could be traded at next week's winter meetings, a source has told Jon Morosi of FOX Sports:

With the acquisition of veteran Torii Hunter on a two-year deal, Boesch becomes an expendable part for the Tigers to shop on the trade market. Morosi's source did not list any specific teams that are showing interest in Boesch, but nearly every team seems to be in the market for an outfielder, so his potential suitors could be many.

After a solid 2011, the 27-year-old Boesch had a tough go of it this past season, hitting just .240/.286/.372 with 12 home runs in 132 games. The lefty slugger spent most of the season as the Tigers' starting right fielder, but lost his job as the season wore on and his numbers failed to improve.
