REPORT: Key Detroit Tiger drawing trade interest at MLB Winter Meetings

Unless the stars align correctly and something crazy happens, 2019 is going to be a long, losing season for the Detroit Tigers.

That season could be even worse if they were to lose one of their best (if not THE best) player on their team.

According to a source of Jon Morosi, Tigers outfielder Nicholas Castellanos has been drawing some trade interest at the Major League Baseball Winter Meetings. Morosi notes the Atlanta Braves are one of the teams that has checked in with the Tigers about Castellanos’ availability.

In 2018, Castellanos hit .298 with 23 home runs and 89 RBIs on a Tigers team that went just 64-98.

Nation, should the Tigers actively seek to trade Nicholas Castellanos or should they look at him as a building block for the future?

Could this former All-Star return to the Detroit Tigers?

The 2018 Major League Baseball Winter Meetings are officially underway, which means the rumors will be flying around for the next few days.

For the Detroit Tigers, adding a shortstop during the offseason is priority No. 1 but general manager Al Avila has said the team will also be open to adding a second baseman if it makes sense.

As it stands, Dawel Lugo is probably the odds-on favorite to land the starting second baseman job out of Spring Training, but at just 23 years of age, he could probably use a bit of seasoning.

So, which second baseman could the Tigers bring in, not only to bridge the gap but to potentially deal at the 2019 Major League Baseball trade deadline?
