Detroit Tigers Rumors

Quiet hot stove brings the Tigers immediate future into sharp relief

If you aren’t selling, and you aren’t buying, you better have a good third path in mind.

Rumor: Tigers interested in free agent starter Taijuan Walker

The Tigers need to bolster their rotation. Reportedly, they’d like to do that by signing righty Taijuan Walker.

Rumor: Tampa Bay Rays interested in Tigers’ LHP Daniel Norris, per report

As the trade deadline looms large, the Tigers may find themselves parting with their left-handed long reliever.

Rumor: Tigers are not shopping Schoop at the deadline

Even if the Tigers don’t make the playoffs, Schoop has value to the organization.

Tigers interested in Jorge Mateo, per report

Mateo is out of options and part of a crowded A’s infield competition this spring.

6 outfielders the Tigers could still sign for 2020

The thinning free agent market still has options as spring training approaches.

Yes, the Tigers should sign Nicholas Castellanos

A slow market may let the Tigers show Castellanos and fans that they are serious about rebuilding.

The Angels are reportedly interested in Matthew Boyd

This could happen, but it still feels quite unlikely.

Free agent target: 2B Yolmer Sanchez

The Tigers could use a middle infielder who plays plus defense. Sánchez could fill that hole.

Free agent target: IF Travis Shaw

The slugging corner infielder could do a lot to improve one of the league’s worst lineups.

The Tigers were interested in Nomar Mazara, but the White Sox got him first

More importantly, the Tigers are looking to improve for 2020 and beyond.

Rumor: The Astros ‘have considered’ trading Carlos Correa

A potential Correa trade is fun to think about considering the Tigers’ history in this department.

Tigers interested in Addison Russell, per report

Russell was the Chicago Cubs’ shortstop for several years before being non-tendered this offseason.

Rumor: Tigers still interested in RHP Josh Lindblom

The veteran has pitched in Korea the last few seasons. Could he return to MLB with the Tigers?

Free agent target: OF Hunter Pence

The aging outfielder had a resurgent 2019 cut short by injuries, but if he can stay healthy, he may be worth a look.

Minor league free agents to keep an eye on this offseason

A veritable horde of former prospects and organizational filler hit free agency this week. The fun part is finding the potential high-value pickups.

Tigers may be interested in Maikel Franco, per report

The Tigers and Phillies have been scouting each other regularly since July.

LHP Kwang-hyun Kim could be an interesting free agent option

The Tigers haven’t been players in the Asian market, but it’s certainly a good time to try something new.

Free agent target: 1B/OF Yoshitomo Tsutsugo

The talented Japanese native could find regular playing time on the Tigers’ 2020 roster.

Tigers trade Nicholas Castellanos to Cubs

Castellanos was dealt right at the 4:00 p.m. trade deadline on Wednesday.

Tigers trade Shane Greene to Atlanta Braves

The Tigers reportedly received two prospects in return for the veteran righthander.

Atlanta Braves interested in Shane Greene

The Washington Nationals and New York Yankees are also in the mix for Greene.

The Indians were interested in Castellanos, but probably not anymore

The Cubs, Rays, and Phillies are still interested in him, however.

Dodgers ‘continuing discussions’ in pursuit of Shane Greene

The Dodgers’ relief core needs help and Greene could provide some.

A’s interested in Shane Greene, per report

The Tigers’ relief ace has attracted the attention of quite a few teams.

Phillies interested in Greene, maybe even Daniel Norris

The Phillies have mostly shown interest in Greene and Matthew Boyd so far.

Cubs interested in Castellanos, per report

The soon-to-be free agent may be on the move before the July 31 trade deadline.

Rumor: Nationals targeting Shane Greene as trade deadline nears

The Nats are in on Greene, but they may lack the key piece to make a deal.

What teams are interested in trading for Matthew Boyd?

The Tigers’ prized trade chip is seeming more and more likely to be cashed in.

Rumor: Phillies are in on the Matt Boyd sweepstakes

However, a lack of high end prospects makes for a narrow path to a deal.

Rumor: The Rays are interested in Joe Jimenez

It would be very hard for the Tigers to get proper value in a Jimenez trade.

Mets interested in Greene and Jimenez, per report

The Mets have checked in on both relievers, but are they really going to buy?
