I just don't get this one. Why would the Cubs even consider this. Michael Wuertz is an important cog in the Cubs middle relief. And for Inge?
With Fernando Rodney and Joel Zumaya out for undetermined lengths of time, the Tigers have continued trade talks with clubs that have surplus relief pitching.
Chicago Cubs right-hander Michael Wuertz has emerged as one of the Tigers' targets. Wuertz, 29, appeared in 73 games last year, with a 2-3 record and 3.48 ERA.
The Cubs have considered adding another right-handed hitter, and they are believed to have some interest in Brandon Inge and Marcus Thames. The San Francisco Giants have also asked about Inge.
