As of yesterday there were reports that the White Sox wanted both prospects AND money for Jake Peavy. Sean McAdam reports that reason is starting to enter the equation:

 

I still feel like the Red Sox have the best shot as they have both the prospects and the money in quantities that none of the other candidates really do, but really, Peavy would look good on any roster right now.

Tigers GM Al Avila said on Tuesday, via MLB.com’s Jason Beck, that there’s been significant headway made in the quest to trade second baseman Ian Kinsler. He said, “We’ve gotten to the point where names have been exchanged. We just can’t agree.”

Kinsler, 35, is in the last year of his contract with the Tigers, earning $10 million for this coming season. In 2017, the veteran batted .236/.313/.412 with 22 home runs, 52 RBI, and 90 runs scored in 613 plate appearances.

It’s not known yet which team (or teams) have gotten far in discussions with the Tigers, but the Angels have been suggested as a good fit given their need for a second baseman.
