The Tigers trading Rick Porcello made it seem like, maybe — just maybe — they were making some room to bring Max Scherzer back. But then they picked up Alfredo Simon and now they have, arguably, six starting pitching options. So, what does that mean for the Tigers and Max Scherzer?
Dombrowski on Scherzer: “I guess anything can happen but we’re not in active pursuit of that situation at this time.”

When you’re a free agent, I guess you’re a “situation.”
If the Tigers are not in active pursuit that means, as far as I can tell, no one is in active pursuit of Scherzer. Which means that this may be a classic Boras-client-signs-in-late-January kind of thing.
