Where the hell did that come from? Clear out $ for Scherzer, I suppose.

No joke. Does this mean they move Cabrera back to 1st?

Heyman: Trade makes it easier for Tigers to keep Scherzer.

I think the trade makes sense for both teams, though the money isn't even.

Miguel Cabrera got worse, so did the Tigers.

Good news for Sox.

Especially if plan is for Tigers to use cash saved to hand $100 million over to Scherzer.

Think of how much money they will have tied up on 3 pitchers. Arms are due to breakdown.

Am I the only one thinking if the Tigers can move Fielder we can move Dunn? I know they are two different players but for **** sake the Rangers just took on nearly $200M.

I have misread the Tigers, and I'm really not sure what this means. While the Tigers probably expected more out of Fielder, his presence was a big reason Cabrera has been the best offensive player in the American League the past two seasons. Essentially, I don't believe the Tigers would have won the division the last two seasons without Fielder in the lineup.

I could see the Tigers wanting to move Cabrera back to first and upgrade defensively at third, although Cabrera actually had a pretty good defensive season there, certainly better than expected. But I really didn't expect them to deal Fielder, especially for Kinsler.

We're not moving Dunn.

Milwaukee needs a first baseman. How about Dunn for Aramis Ramirez?

Tigers sending <$50 million to Texas:

Tigers also don't think Miggy can play 3B anymore:

They're going to be able to have an actual defensive 3B going forward. They're losing protection for Cabrera, but they're gaining a ****-ton of defense on the infield. I think this is a major positive for the Tigers.

Not sure why Milwaukee would do that. Aramis is the much better hitter, at a more premium position.

Default Tigers trade Fielder to Rangers

Jon Heyman ‏@JonHeymanCBS
fielder for kinsler trade is agreed to, pending approvals/waiver.
http://cbsprt.co/1iw8Bno

Fielder for Kinsler agreed to. Prince has texas on no-trade list but is expected to approve deal.


JIM BOWDEN ‏@JimBowdenESPNxm
Salary Comparison: Kinsler: $16m in '14 & '15; $14m in '16; $11m in '17; team option '18 for $12m or $5m buyout. Fielder: $24m '14-'20

Jeff Passan ‏@JeffPassan 20m Prince Fielder is 29 years old. If he were a free agent this year, he may demand as much as Robinson Cano. Getting him for 7/138 is a steal.

JIM BOWDEN ‏@JimBowdenESPNxm
What's next for Tigers: 1.Extend Scherzer 2.Move Cabrera to 1B 3.Move Castellanos back to 3B 4.Sign Closer (Nathan) 5.Pursue LF (Beltran?)


What's next for Rangers? 1. Move Profar to 2B 2. Pursue McCann 3. Pursue corner OFer/DH (Cruz,Choo,Beltran)

Bob Nightengale ‏@BNightengale
The #Tigers were privately upset w Fielder's comments after final game of season and may have played factor in deal

Jon Morosi ‏@jonmorosi
Tigers fans were down on Fielder at end of season, but they will miss his bat. Large part of motivation is trade could help keep Max.
