Detroit Tigers Open To Trade Talks

miggy

According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, the Detroit Tigers are open to listening to offers for everyone on their roster. Everyone on the Tigers roster includes two-time AL MVP, and face of the franchise Miguel Cabrera.

The Tigers are set to boast a large payroll with numerous players over the age of 30. In 2016, the Tigers spent $198.5 million of payroll, and as of right now, before free agency, the magic number for next year is set at $176.2 million.

Cabrera is signed for $212 million through 2023, with two $30 million options in 2024 and 2025. Cabrera has posted eight straight season of at least a .300 average and .500 slugging percentage, which makes him offensively very appealing to many teams. The problem with Cabrera is that his contract is very long and a lot to take on for a player who is already 33 years old.

Other players who might be considered in trade talks to cut down some payroll are second baseman Ian Kinsler, catcher Victor Martinez, pitcher Justin Verlander, and pitcher Jordan Zimmerman, all of which are north of 30 years old. A young guy who may be considered is outfielder J.D Martinez, who is coming off a year in which he hit .307 with 22 HR’s. Martinez could be a rental for a contender as he is set to hit free agency after the 2017 season, and is only due $11.75 million.

The Tigers definitely need to do something as they have spent this large a sum of money, more than they ever have, and are still without a playoff appearance since 2014. This Tigers team is built around a very talented core, however that core is aging and aging fast. The Tigers are going to need to get a whole lot younger if they are hoping to keep pace with the Indians in the AL Central.
