5 pitchers, 5 outfielders Detroit Tigers could target in last-minute trade to stay in playoff picture

As of Monday, the Tigers sit just two games behind the Toronto Blue Jays for the No. Here are five starting pitchers and five outfielders the Tigers could consider targeting in a last-minute deal.

1 trade, 3 position swaps, lineup overhaul -- 5 steps Detroit Tigers could take to stay in playoff race
Right now, its a three-team race between the Tigers, Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles, who are 1.5 games out of the No. The Blue Jays have the most talented lineup with the likes of Cavan Biggio, Vlad Guerrero Jr., Teoscar Hernandez and a red-hot Randal Grichuk. The Blue Jays have the best roster and the easiest schedule, and theyve already improved their team through a trade. The Blue Jays got Daniel Vogelbach, the Padres got Yonder Alonso and the Giants got Daniel Robertson, all for cash considerations. Norris, on the other hand, is coming off his best season as a pro and is showing increased velocity.
