Free-agent DT Kevin Williams said he will consider retirement if he does not receive the salary he is looking for this offseason.
The 33-year old defensive tackle isn't the player he once was and posted just 29 tackles with 3.5 sacks and one interception last season in a more limited role than he is used to. He's a great supporting player, but his days of being a premium player are behind him. He's probably not quite ready for retirement so expect to see him hanging around a little longer.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Joakim Soria will throw a bullpen session Thursday.
Soria was acquired last season by the Tigers as an insurance policy for the struggling Joe Nathan but he found himself getting injured just six games after being acquired which forced him to miss more than a month. In 13 games with the Tigers last season Soria went 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA after posting a 2.70 ERA with the Rangers prior to the trade. The Tigers expect Nathan to be their closer heading into the season which will mean Soria will once again be in a set up role. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
