At-least three teams have interest in Rangers reliever Joakim Soria.
Soria, 30, is a near certainty to be moved ahead of the trade deadline. Though 30 1/3 innings of work the right hander owns a 2.67 and 40/4 K/BB ratio while picking up 16 saves for the Rangers.
Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports that the Tigers have joined the Angels and Blue Jays as having interest in Soria.

The Tigers have tried using Joe Nathan as their closer but the 39-year-old has struggled compiling a 5.61 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP while picking up 19 saves. Soria could be a replacement at the backend of the Tigers bullpen.
