Reaction #1: Jed (@TigersJUK)
Noted Detroit Tigers fan across the pond, @TigersJUK, shared his thoughts. Jed's always good to tell you like it is, and he does just that. It's a move that will not shatter the world or put the Tigers into an era of competition by any means. But Detroit's getting a nice veteran to throw into the mix.
As Jed highlights in his tweet, there's a versatility aspect to like here, and he adds a veteran bat into the outfield. Canha's a good start for the Tigers this off-season as they look to take some chances as the 2023-24 off-season gets going. It's a move that proves the team is trying to make some changes and trying to move the needle in the right direction.
In his tweet, Jed notes that Canha will not be relied upon every day. It's something that will shield him in a way. He will be able to get at-bats while also serving as a leader amongst the younger crop of outfielders that will patrol the grass in 2024. Detroit's going to try and squeeze value out of Canha.
It may not be the most significant trade in the world, but the Tigers were able to flip a prospect for a veteran player, picking up the option on his contract. It should be labeled as a win for the Tigers in the early moments after the deal.
