According to reports, the best player on the Detroit Tigers is being targeted by a National League contender.
Jon Morosi’s sources are telling him that the Los Angeles Dodgers are still interested in trading the Tigers for outfielder, Nicholas Castellanos.
Sources: #Dodgers continue discussing Corey Kluber with #Indians and also are interested in #Tigers outfielder Nick Castellanos, on whom the price tag is high. Latest story: https://t.co/IpStB5CGB6 @MLB @MLBNetwork

“If Verdugo is dealt, the Dodgers likely would replace him with a right-handed hitter via free agency or trade. To that end, the Dodgers have shown interest in trading for Tigers right fielder Nicholas Castellanos, one source said.
Castellanos, 27, is coming off a career-best offensive year and will become a free agent following the 2019 season. A trade for Castellanos is plausible for the Dodgers now that Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp — who accounted for 152 of the Dodgers’ 163 regular-season starts in right field — have moved on to Cincinnati.”
Nation, would you be in favor of the Tigers trading Nicholas Castellanos or do you believe he is a piece the team should build around?
Michigan Wolverines’ National Signing Day recap
Jim Harbaugh and the University of Michigan football coaching staff had a very productive national signing day run. On the first day of the early signing period, the Wolverines were able to fill up almost their entire 2019 Freshman class inking commitments with 25 recruits.
The day was marked by the biggest surprise, maybe in the country, when Daxton Hill decided to send his letter of intent to Michigan. Only 11 days ago, Daxton flipped his commitment to Michigan to Alabama, but today that all changed. Hill is a five-star safety from Oklahoma with a great pedigree. He is the younger brother of Justice Hill, the Oklahoma State running back that just declared for the NFL draft.
Other notable commitments include Zach Charbonnet (RB) and Chris Hinton (DL). Both are in the top 100 nationally and are part of a trio that should be the backbone of this 2019 class. The other major commit was Cornelius Johnson, a top 250 player that, as a wide receiver, is viewed to be the missing piece at a position that Michigan has struggled to fill in its run-heavy offense.
As it stands now, Michigan has the top-ranked recruiting class in the B1G according to multiple sources and are ranked 7th nationally according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
