New suitor for Wilson

LAS VEGAS — The Detroit Tigers are more likely to sign free agent Adam Everett instead of trading for Jack Wilson. That seems to have made Everett’s former employer, the Minnesota Twins, the frontrunner for Wilson.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have not upped their offer for Wilson, while the Tigers’ interest has turned frigid. With the market for shortstops drying up, the Twins do not want to be caught, um, short.

Unless they make a move, the Twins probably would make utilityman Brendan Harris (.265, seven homers in 2008) its Opening Day shortstop. Their only other internal options would be prospects Trevor Ploffe and Steve Tolleson.

In mid-June, the Pirates play an interleague series against the Twins in Minnesota.
