Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila is bringing change to the team this offseason. So far, Avila has already dealt Cameron Maybin. Despite the change, here are the 10 Tigers least likely to be traded.

Detroit Tigers fans will see a different team next season.

Cameron Maybin has already moved on, having been dealt to Anaheim for pitching prospect Victor Alcantara. The change has already begun.

As it stands, some combination of JaCoby Jones, Tyler Collins, Wynton Bernard and Anthony Gose will patrol center field.

Additionally, center field may not be the only position of change.

J.D. Martinez is a conceivable trade candidate given his relatively affordable contract and excellent production. The same can be said of Ian Kinsler.

What’s more, it wouldn’t be a shock to see Francisco Rodriguez, Anibal Sanchez and Victor Martinez moved in offseason deals.

All said, Detroit could field new starters in right field and at second base, closer and designated hitter.

However, for as many players who could leave via trade, there are just as many who are likely to stay in the Motor City.

Here are the 10 Detroit Tigers players least likely to be traded. The players are ranked from 10 to one.
