3. Starting pitcher

The Tigers could really use another starter to help fill out the rotation — preferably one with a history of pitching a lot of innings. Here's where there's still plenty of options left in free agency.

For starters, the Japanese imports — Yoshinobu Yamamoto and Shota Imanaga — should be at the top of their list. Yamamoto will cost much more, but he'd be worth every penny. Imanaga is no slouch, either. Either one would be a heck of a get.

Domestically, there are still some pitchers worth taking a look at. Eduardo Rodriguez is off the market after signing with the Arizona Diamondbacks. More on him soon.

Lucas Giolitio and Frankie Montas are interesting bounce back candidates. Giolito has a history of being a workhorse, but gave up a ton of hard contact last year. Montas is coming off an injury-riddled stint with the Yankees, but his stuff is nasty.

The opportunity to add more starting pitcher is there. Will Scott Harris and company take advantage? Only time will tell.
