Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila could make some moves this July. If Detroit makes any trades, these teams are the best and worst trade partners based on available assets.

Detroit Tigers fans have seen some up-and-down play in the last few weeks. At one point, Detroit seemed out if and destined for a sell off.

While that could still conceivably happen, the Tigers have ripped off three straight wins to gain some much-needed momentum.

This puts the team in an interesting position moving forward, especially if the wins continue to pile up.

More wins are entirely possible. Detroit will play the team’s next nine against Kansas City, Minnesota and the Royals again—this time in the Motor City.

Despite both franchises being ahead of the Tigers in the standings, Miguel Cabrera and company have winning records against both this season.

It obviously remains to be seen if Detroit will make any trades this season.

J.D. Martinez and Justin Wilson could both fetch premium returns. Additionally, veterans like Jose Iglesias, Anibal Sanchez and Alex Avila are hypothetical trade candidates.

Should the Detroit Tigers make any trades this month, here are the best and worst trade partners based one each team’s prospects and young players available who could be fits in the Motor City.
