The winter meetings may be over, but that doesn’t mean Detroit is done dealing.

The post-winter-meeting hangover left us with a pretty quiet weekend around these parts. That doesn’t mean things weren’t happening elsewhere around the league, and it certainly doesn’t mean we shouldn’t expect more offseason action from the Tigers. Ian Kinsler might be gone, but the trade cupboard isn’t exactly bare.

More to sell

Al Avila hustled on down to Orlando with the goal of trading Ian Kinsler burning like a fire in his belly, and good decision or not, he made the trade happen. This doesn’t mean Detroit is done on the trade market though. MLB Trade Rumors has posted its list of 60 remaining offseason targets and five Tigers made the list. They reckon the team could move any one of Michael Fulmer, Shane Greene, Alex Wilson, Jose Iglesias, or Nick Castellanos, but they don’t exactly sound optimistic that it will happen with any of the named Tigers.

Wrap it up

If you’re looking for a wrap-up of all the transactions the winter meetings brought last week MLB Trade Rumors has a nice overview you can check out. It ranges from trades to major and minor league signings. You might learn something you didn’t know before, like the fact that the Tigers signed some guy named Ronny Rodriguez to a minor league contract.

Always be training

Daniel Norris sees all you guys in your high tech breathable sweat-wicking workout gear throwing your weighted balls and checking your high tech computer stats and he’s decided to Rocky IV the situation. While everybody else is going all Ivan Drago on the technology, he’s channeling his inner Rocky Balboa and taking a more nature-based approach. Dude is throwing rocks.

It’s not too early to start making your Cy Young predictions for 2018, folks.
