Both the M’s and the Diamondbacks have made significant trades with Dave Dombrowski’s Tigers in recent years. So this is not terribly surprising:

I wonder if this is serious or, rather, if this is being floated by the Tigers in order to goose the Cubs and/or Orioles into going further down the road with that three-team trade rumored last week.
In other news, it’s really hard to tell what’s real and what’s just being thrown out there for perception and leverage this time of year.
