Cleveland is looking into the former Tigers' utility man.
Raburn, 31, played his way into an almost everyday swing role with the Tigers following solid seasons in 2009 and 2010. The Florida native showed signs of wear in 2011 but still flashed enough power to keep his utility role with Detroit to start the 2012 season.
Hoping for a rebound year, Raburn turned in the worst performance of his career last season, batting just .171/.226/.254 with a single home run in 66 games. When they acquired Omar Infante at the trade deadline, the Tigers essentially stopped playing Raburn, and non-tendered him in November.
