Is there any chance of Max Scherzer re-signing with the Tigers?

25 Comments

For a while now the assumption has been that the Tigers will not re-sign free agent ace Max Scherzer, but the door for a return is at least a little bit open.

General manager Dave Dombrowski told Jason Beck of MLB.com that “we’ll just wait and see what happens” because he doesn’t expect Scherzer and his agent, Scott Boras, to move the process along quickly. And of course Boras is very open to the idea of Scherzer returning to Detroit, because he simply wants the most interested teams as possible in the mix.

However, the Tigers seemingly acquired David Price from the Rays in part to replace Scherzer atop the rotation in 2015 and, even without Scherzer returning, Detroit’s rotation will approach an $80 million payroll by itself next season. And the Tigers just spent $68 million to re-sign 36-year-old designated hitter Victor Martinez.
