The Detroit Tigers could make a few trades that would help the organization down the line as they plow through their rebuild.
Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila is going to have a busy offseason. The team has a few glaring holes on the roster that need to be filled – yet he also has to balance trading away soon to be free agents in order to recuperate prospect capital in return.
It’s not an easy feat, and the team has some tough decisions about some of their best players this year.
Additionally, capitalizing on a strong season is important as well. Trading Michael Fulmer may have made sense last offseason, but makes less sense this winter after an ugly, injury filled season has tanked his trade value.
On the contrary, Detroit has a few players coming off excellent seasons who could demand more on the trade market than expected, and thus should be traded at their high point.
Here are three of potentially many trade pieces for the Tigers this season, along with a list of teams who might be interested and a few potential prospects to target in return.
