Tigers trade rumors: Justin Wilson boosting his value with scoreless streak

DETROIT -- Of the five players that ESPN reporter Buster Olney is most convinced will be traded in the next two weeks, two are Detroit Tigers.

It should come as no surprise to Tigers fans that outfielder J.D. Martinez and left-handed reliever Justin Wilson are on the list. Catcher Alex Avila probably deserved consideration as well.

In fact, there's a strong case to be made that Avila is more likely to be traded than Wilson. Avila is a free agent after this season; Wilson is under team control through 2018.

If the Tigers don't like the offers they get for Wilson this month, they can always wait until the winter.
