Dave Dombrowski Not Interested In Trading Top Prospects For Rentals

New, 1 comment

If the Tigers do make any moves before next Saturday's trade deadline, it seems that none of the organization's top prospects will be involved if Detroit is trading for a player who is set to become a free agent at the end of the season.

Dave Dombrowski of #Tigers on Sunday morning: "Not trading our top prospects for a two-month rental."

One player who would be a two-month rental is Adam Dunn, as he is in the final year of his contract. While there has been talk that the Tigers are interested in him, I think it's safe to say no top prospects would be involved. Dunn is going to become a free agent at the end of the season, and there's no point in getting rid of your top players down the road for a couple months of Dunn or anybody on the market for that matter.
