The Detroit Tigers trade rumor mill has been relatively quiet after landing Joakim Soria from the Texas Rangers last week, but it has been ratcheted up today, with just a couple hours to go before the Trade Deadline. According to Jon Morosi, the team could be close to landing another bullpen piece.
Tigers and Red Sox “getting close” to deal for Andrew Miller, source says.

Tigers’ fans might remember Miller from being one of the organization’s prized prospects in the mid-2000’s, spending time with the big league club in parts of 2006 and 2007 before being shipped in the package of players to the Florida Marlins for Miguel Cabrera.
He is a free agent after this season.
UPDATE, according to ESPN Boston, he ain’t coming here.
Tigers are NOT getting Andrew Miller
