ARLINGTON, TX - AUGUST 14: Michael Fulmer /

Day 1 of the Winter Meetings is over and the Detroit Tigers had a relatively quiet start to the 2017 Winter Meetings.

As well Day 2 of the Winter Meetings is almost over, and today we learned that the Yankees and Rangers have expressed interest in acquiring starting pitcher Michael Fulmer. One person that they should avoid is trading for Clint Frazier.

Any trade that involves Michael Fulmer could net huge prospects per Bless You Boys. The Detroit Tigers are actively shopping for starting pitchers during the Winter Meetings.

Ryan Belvins, also of Bless You Boys, thinks getting Derek Holland is a good option for the Tigers.

The Tigers have been open about trading second baseman Ian Kinsler, but have yet to do so.  One member of the Detroit Tigers unlikely to move is Jose Iglesias. Joe Jimenez, at the request of the Detroit Tigers, has lost weight this off-season.

Leonys Martin, is excited to have room to run in Comerica Park, per Evan Woodbury of Woodbury quoted Martin, saying:

"“I really enjoy playing in Detroit because it gives me a chance to run and make good plays,” he said during a teleconference with local reporters on Tuesday. “I like to run in the outfield. I like to cover. I think I can do it. And I’m going to show up ready from Day 1 of spring training. It’s going to be fun.”"

With the recent signing of Martin, the question of who’ll be playing in centerfield for the Detroit Tigers, the Detroit Free Press points out.

Before signing catcher Derek Norris, the Detroit Tigers did their due diligence, as Morris has had Domestic Abuse Allegations brought against him.
