Tigers | Listening for offers on Rick Porcello

The Detroit Tigers are intently listening to trade offers for SP Rick Porcello, but they haven't initiated anything with other clubs. Porcello has 18 strikeouts and no walks while allowing 15 hits in 18 innings over four spring starts, raising his trade value. "Is it improved mechanics? That he's not throwing his slider? I don't know. But people forget that here you had the top pitching prospect in the game when we drafted him (2007)," general manger Dave Dombrowski said.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello will become a very interesting pitching commodity if he's traded or wins the No. 5 rotation spot over Drew Smyly. He should be drafted in AL leagues, but you can wait to see what happens with him in mixed universes.
