The Detroit Tigers traded SP Doug Fister to the Washington Nationals Monday, Dec. 2, in exchange for 2B Steve Lombardozzi, SP Ian Krol and P Robbie Ray. SP Drew Smyly will move into the rotation in Detroit to replace Fister. Ray is expected to start next year in the minor leagues. Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said dealing Fister had nothing to do with the hopes that they can sign SP Max Scherzer to a long-term contract before he becomes a free agent. Lombardozzi will serve as a utility infielder for the Tigers.

Detroit Tigers SP Max Scherzer is open to discussing a contract extension with the team despite being a full year away from free agency, according to his agent, Scott Boras. "They know Max likes it there," Boras said. "We would have to sit down and talk about their plans for the future. But when you have a player who likes playing where he's playing and an ownership that has been what Mike Ilitch has been in Detroit, it's certainly something we would listen to." Scherzer has been the subject of trade rumors this offseason.

The Washington Nationals want to trade for an elite starting pitcher, and Detroit Tigers SP Max Scherzer could be at the top of their list, as well as Tampa Bay Rays SP David Price. Scherzer was general manager Mike Rizzo's last first-round pick as the Arizona Diamondbacks scouting director in 2006. The price in prospects for Scherzer will be lower than it is for Price. The Nationals also have a strong relationship with Scherzer's agent, Scott Boras. According to sources, the Tigers are in the "listening, not shopping" mode on Scherzer.

The Detroit Tigers could look to trade SP Max Scherzer in the offseason, according to sources. He is one year away from free agency and is a Scott Boras client, meaning he's unlikely to sign a long-term deal so that he would be able to test the market. Scherzer is unlikely to accept a deal in the offseason. His salary is expected to jump up to around $20 million next year. The Washington Nationals and Texas Rangers would likely have interest and have the young pitching needed to get a deal done.
