REPORT: Los Angeles Dodgers interested in trading for Tigers’ Nicholas Castellanos

According to Jon Morosi, the Los Angeles Dodgers have expressed interest in trading for Detroit Tigers outfielder Nicholas Castellanos, though there is no present momentum towards a deal. Morosi did note that the Dodgers have priorities higher than Castellanos.

Earlier in the day, Morosi reported that the Atlanta Braves were also interested in trading for Castellanos.

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?

According to Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press, the right man for the job could be former Tigers All-Star and Gold Glove winner, Ian Kinsler.

Kinsler, 36, has been a winning player for the past decade, and now he finally has a World Series championship ring to show for it. Said one Red Sox executive about Kinsler’s contributions down the stretch last season, “He was really good for us.”

How did the Red Sox land Kinsler? In a July 30 trade with the Angels for a pair of pitching prospects.

Kinsler is a veteran player who should be very tradeable, especially if his offensive improvement from the second half carries over this season. He struggled in the first half with Los Angeles, but after finding his stride near midseason, he hit .282 in the second half with his customary quality defense at second base. Last season, Kinsler won the American League Gold Glove Award at second base, the second of his career.
