look no further. Here, you can find the latest deals from the league, including deals from The Detroit Tigers, who figure to be a seller after an utterly disappointing start to the season. there are live updates
A season of optimism gave way to poor injury luck for a top prospect, even with the addition of poor injury luck for a half-dozen pitchers and a costly free-agent shunning the team.
Last year, the Tigers looked like sellers, but were playing better baseball in June and July, so instead of tackling giants like Robbie Grossman and Jonathan Shoup, they largely stood. Daniel Norris was traded in while Shoup’s contract was extended (a move that doesn’t seem to be working very well these days – Schoop is declining .211/.269/.317).

In 2022, Tigers will almost certainly be more active. Stretches of good baseball — the team has won between four and six games this season — are sandwiched between blowouts and series defeats, due to an overcrowded injury list and a minor offense.
Michael Fulmer has been dominant from the bullpen, but he is a free agent at the end of the season. Similarly, Andrew Chaffin (sitting out of the Tigers’ series in Toronto due to lack of a COVID-19 vaccination) has a player option for 2023 as part of a two-year deal signed in March. Joe Jimenez has one more year before free agency, boosting his potential value in a trade, and close to Gregory Soto may be the most lucrative business piece – as he still has many years of arbitrage to play.
Grossman is not worth as much as last season due to poor performances – he is still a free agent after this season. But still a claimant can be dealt with as a backup piece. for the same Tucker Bernhardt, who isn’t offering much offensive, is still a plus defensive catcher; The two-time Gold Glove winner could make a good late-innings option for a playoff team. Michael Pineda and Willy Peralta has done well when he is healthy (both are currently on IL) and can be traded on his one-year deals.
But any and all Tigers, outside Riley Green, Miguel Cabrera and possibly Spencer Torkelson, should be on the table for a team whose rebuilding seems stuck in neutral.
Of course, the headliners, the blockbuster swap, could include All-Stars like Juan Soto and Wilson Contreras. Talented right-hander Luis Castillo, who was suspected of being the top starting pitcher in the market, was traded to the Seattle Mariners late Friday after the Royals’ 2022 All-Star Andrew Benintendi was traded to the New York Yankees.
