Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila pulled off two key deals on Wednesday as the team dealt starting pitcher Justin Verlander and Justin Upton. Here are Detroit’s best remaining trade chips.
Detroit Tigers fans certainly saw an eventful end to August.
Seeing Justin Verlander and Justin Upton traded in the span of 24 hours will do that for you.
Tigers general manager Al Avila and the rest of the front office made a pair of key deals that could have a significant impact on the club’s future.
Detroit brought in four prospects in the trades sending out both Upton and Verlander.
All four players have the chance to make an impact in Detroit, especially Perez, who has the ceiling of a frontline starter.
With Upton and Verlander out the door, the question now becomes what other veteran pieces will Detroit move?
September trades are always a possibility, but the bulk of Al Avila’s trading will likely come in the next offseason.
It obviously remains to be seen which players will be traded, but here are the Detroit Tigers best remaining trade chips.
