Tigers designate Armando Galarraga for assignment

Per Jon Paul Morosi, the Detroit Tigers have designated Armando Galarraga for assignment.

My initial reaction was that, given that the Rangers starting pitching depth is looking a little shallow, and Galarraga would be a serviceable #5 guy, shouldn't the Rangers be inquiring about him?

The cost would probably not be any more than what the Tigers gave up to get him in the first place -- outfielder Michael Hernandez, whom the Rangers promptly released that spring.

Galarraga is out of options, and he's not going to be real cheap, dollar-wise, but you could do worse than him to round out your rotation.
