Trade Deadline Day is finally here and the Detroit Tigers find themselves in a great position to cash in. In a trade market full of teams wanting/needing to upgrade their rosters for the stretch run of the 2023 season, the Tigers are one of the few teams that have a number of options available to sell in what is a very shallow market.

So far, the Tigers have slow played the trade deadline. When there was a flurry of activity that saw Lucas Giolito, Lance Lynn, Max Scherzer, and a host of other players find new teams, the Tigers chose to wait and see which teams could meet Detroit's price demands. Given how this market is looking, one cannot blame them for trying.

However, time is running out and soon it will become clear if the Tigers' gambit will pay off. One thing is absolutely certain, though: the Tigers are taking a lot of phone calls right now and will have a ton of attention being paid to them down to the wire at the deadline.
