General manager Al Avila said Detroit would have an open mind about anyone on the roster and with expensive players like Verlander, Miguel Cabrera, Ian Kinsler and J.D. Martinez still capable of helping any team, the Tigers were an obvious candidate to trade stars for prospects and reduce their payroll. (AP Photo/Ron Schwane, File)
