The team who has claimed him has not yet been revealed

Tigers’ second baseman Ian Kinsler has been claimed off revocable waivers by a team that has as of yet not been revealed, according to Jon Heyman.

This does not necessarily mean a trade is imminent, as several things stand in the way. The Tigers can pull Kinsler back, if they don’t like the trade offer, or Kinsler may have a no-trade agreement in place he would need to waive for a trade to go through, specifically with the Milwaukee Brewers who seem the most likely team to have claimed him based on previous interest. The Tigers can also simply release Kinsler to the team, but the new team needs to agree to take on Kinsler’s full salary.

We will update the story as more details become available.
