The DetroitTigers, big-time sellers for the better part of a year, continue to have trade talks. A source with knowledge of the Tigers discussions said Monday night they are discussing with “multiple clubs” a possible deal for veteran second baseman Ian Kinsler. Jon Paul Morosi of mlb.com and Fox Sports said Monday on Twitter that the Tigers have been in talks with the Mets. Al Avila, the Tigers general manager, has made clear the Tigers would trade Kinsler in an effort to help themselves with a swap as well as deliver Kinsler to a team that might be a better fit for his championship hopes in 2018. Kinsler, 35, though, has said he would contentedly remain in Detroit and help with Avila’s rebuilding project should no deal eventuate.
