Yoenis Cespedes is fitting in nicely in Detroit; he has provided consistent offense and really lengthened the Detroit lineup in a positive way. Which is also why other teams would like to see him in their lineup.

It would be great to see him sign an extension with Detroit, but as stated earlier with Price and Simon, get what you can out of them if teams are willing to exchange young talent. Or any talent for that matter.

But if the Tigers continue their poor play, it’s fitting to sell-high on Cespedes. He comes to play everyday, making him ever so valuable. Sure, his power has went down. But with a batting average consistently around .300 and the amount of base hits on the rise, he’d bring some pop to any offense.

And at this point in time is quite used to trades, having already been a member of two deals involving the Oakland Athletics, Boston Red Sox, and the Tigers.
