Detroit Tigers rumors are continuing to stay in the headlines as the calendar year winds down. According to the latest report, a potential Justin Wilson trade to Chicago looks unlikely.
Detroit Tigers rumors don’t appear to be going anywhere. The Winter Meetings are a thing of the past. However, the names of Detroit players are still surfacing in the rumor mill.
Per the latest tweet from USA TODAY’s Bob Nightengale, any potential trade involving Justin Wilson and the Chicago Cubs doesn’t seem likely at this point.
The writer tweeted, “The #Cubs trade talks for #Tigers Justin Wilson have stalled, the clubs say, unable to find match, and both sides appear to have moved on.”
Detroit and Chicago would have made for interesting trade partners.

While the defending champs don’t necessarily have a need in the bullpen, teams are always looking for more depth.
Wilson is slated to make $2.7 million next season, per MLBTradeRumors. The reliever is one of the more attractive trade chips on Detroit’s roster.
Added Bullpen Depth
Whether the team moves Wilson remains to be seen, but they certainly have the depth to withstand a trade.
Tigers general manager Al Avila has added a number of pitchers this offseason to give the team more potential options.
Reliever Daniel Stumpf was also added via the Rule 5 draft.
