Detroit Tigers fans could conceivably see some trades happen this offseason. Here’s a look at some potential trade fits with the Washington Nationals.
Detroit Tigers players have already experienced plenty of change as of late.
More change could conceivably be coming in the next few months.
Kinsler is a superior option at second compared to the entirety of the free agent market, while Iglesias is likely a better all-around option than most shortstops available this offseason save Zack Cozart.
Youth, youth and more youth
Detroit needs young players and prospects to build for the future. One creative way to add more players in that regard would be to absorb a significant salary in a trade with a promising prospect or two also heading to the Tigers for taking on the contract.
The team probably shouldn’t add any long-term commitments in this regard, but there could be value in players on shorter contracts.
This brings us to the Washington Nationals, a team that is in win-now mode.
Washington could be tight on cash this winter, and Detroit would make sense as a potential trade partner.
This is all speculative mind you. That being said, here’s a look at some trade ideas involving the Tigers and Nats.
