06:05 AM ET 01.20 | Brandon Lyon and the Tigers have "mutual interest" that will at least make Detroit a consideration for the free-agent reliever. Lyon's agent, Barry Meister, said Monday he expects to speak with the Tigers today or Wednesday. "We'll chat with them, absolutely," Meister said. "Clearly, there's mutual interest." Lyon, 29, would be a natural candidate to close for the Tigers, who would prefer to use Fernando Rodney as a set-up man.
