Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune reports that the Tigers and Cubs have yet to discuss a Carlos Marmol trade, and "at the moment it appears Detroit is focusing on other possibilities."

Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago reported earlier Tuesday that the Tigers were "taking a hard look" at Marmol, but it appears that report might have overstated their interest. Rogers did add that talks between the two teams "could still surface." Although it does appear that the Tigers will add someone, Marmol is an odd fit since, like Bruce Rondon, he has control issues.
