One caveat to consider on Tigers' trade deadline stance: the team also indicated they would not make any big splashes following the Winter Meetings. Then they went out and signed Justin Upton. Owner Mike Ilitch is always a phone call away. Conversely, if team goes off the rails in the next week or if rehab of Zimmermann/Norris takes an unexpected turn, unloading a piece may sound more enticing. Avila did leave the door open. He said standing pat was the team's most realistic option "sitting here right now."

BREAKING: Chicago White Sox pitcher Chris Sale scratched from tonight's start against the Detroit Tigers and sent home because of a pre-game clubhouse incident. According to a team-issued press release, the incident was "non-physical" in nature. Sale has been the subject of rampant trade speculation the past few days after GM Rick Hahn admitted he would be open-minded in listening to trade offers for club's ace.

Don't hold your breath if you were hoping the Detroit Tigers might engage in big-game hunting at the trade deadline. GM Al Avila said standing pat remains "the most realistic option." "It might not be the sexiest thing, but it is what it is." Views the return of pitchers Jordan Zimmermann and Daniel Norris as the big acquisitions. Also optimistic that J.D. Martinez will be back in time to make an impact in potential playoff race
