FILE - In this Sunday, Sept. 18, 2016 file photo, Cleveland Indians' Abraham Almonte slides safely into second base on a steal as Detroit Tigers' Ian Kinsler reaches for the throw during the second inning of a baseball game in Cleveland. A couple months ago, it looked like the Tigers could be major sellers after missing the postseason the past two years. General manager Al Avila said Detroit would have an open mind about anyone on the roster and with expensive players like Verlander, Miguel Cabrera, Ian Kinsler and J.D. Martinez still capable of helping any team, the Tigers were an obvious candidate to trade stars for prospects and reduce their payroll. (AP Photo/Phil Long, File)
