Detroit’s front office has indicated that Cespedes, as well as pitcher David Price, are on the market this trade deadline. Cespedes has strung together a quality season thus far for the Tigers, batting .289 with 13 home runs and 52 RBI on the season. His 27 doubles also lead all of Major League Baseball.
For those looking to quickly boost their offense as the season winds down, the Cuban import is a perfect solution; Cespedes is only owed $5 million for the remainder of the year and is a free agent after the season.
Now, in no particular order, let’s take a look at the top landing spots for the slugging outfielder.
