MLB trade rumors: Teams interested in Tigers veteran Ian Kinsler

The Tigers finished tied for the worst record in MLB last season, selling a number of their veteran assets in the process.

Justin Verlander famously moved to the Astros in time to help lead them to a World Series title, but Detroit also shipped Justin Upton to the Angels, and Justin Wilson and Alex Avila to the Cubs.

According to MLB.com, second baseman Ian Kinsler might be the next to go, with several teams interested in his services.

Kinsler, 35, has one year and $11 million left on his current contract, which could entice a contender to rent him for a season relatively cheaply.

The report stated that the Angels were among the teams interested in Kinsler. It also stated that some teams would like Kinsler to play third base if a trade is made.

Kinsler, a four-time All-Star, hit just .236 with 22 home runs and 52 RBIs last season, but he had a .288/.348/.484 slash line with 28 home runs and 83 RBIs in 2016.
