John Paul Morosi, from the Detroit Free Press, explains why acquiring Wilson makes sense for the Tigers.
Mr Morosi points to Carlos Guillen as why they need Wilson. It is not to get Guillen out of the lineup, but to save some wear and tear on his body through 2011. He also points out Jim Leyland loves run stoppers with the NL background he has. Everything is adding up to this trade happening.
According to some sources, Wilson has already cleared waivers. If the deal happens, it will be sooner rather than later.
