USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Padres are "letting teams know" that Joaquin Benoit is available and the Tigers are among the clubs that are "quite interested."
Benoit, of course, spent the previous three seasons with the Tigers before inking a two-year, $15.5 million contract with the Padres last winter. He's still owed roughly $12.5 million of that when you include a buyout of his 2016 option, which is a sum the Tigers weren't interested in paying over the offseason. However, they've had their issues in the bullpen and might consider Benoit now. The 36-year-old boasts a 1.30 ERA, 0.72 WHIP and 39/7 K/BB ratio over 34 2/3 relief innings for the Padres this season.
