Tigers not actively shopping Justin Verlander
Friday Jul 14, 2017 12:00am

(DETROIT) - There's no need to bury that Justin Verlander jersey in your closet just yet. As the Detroit Tigers prepare to begin their post-All-Star break schedule Friday - and as rumors continue to swirl before the trade deadline later this month - MLB.com reporter Mark Feinsand tweeted Wednesday afternoon that the Tigers aren't actively shopping their veteran right-hander, but "could be talked into moving him." With the Tigers at 39-48 and eight games out of the American League Central lead, the belief is they will look to sell off some of their expiring contracts and valuable pieces, such as outfielder J.D. Martinez and closer Justin Wilson, to contending teams looking for extra help. The 34 year old Verlander's name has come up in trade rumors, too, but there are a few sticking points. For one, he has struggled so far this year: he's 5-6 with a 4.73 ERA in 18 starts. He's also under contract through the 2020 season with $78 million remaining on his deal after this year, a high price tag for a struggling player in his mid-30's.
