Detroit Tigers: American League Central Offseason Review

Detroit Tigers general manager Al Avila recently completed his second offseason in charge of the club.

While he didn’t make the same kinds of trades as his first offseason, in which Avila brought in Cameron Maybin, Justin Wilson and Francisco Rodriguez, the general manager still made some shrewd moves.

Maybin was traded once again, this time to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for power pitching prospect Victor Alcantara in a cost-cutting move.

The outfielder enjoyed a productive season at the plate in 2016, but Detroit will move forward with cheaper alternatives in JaCoby Jones, Tyler Collins and Mikie Mahtook.
