MLB Trade Rumors: Jacoby Ellsbury for Robinson Cano or Justin Verlander Trade Ideas Still Make Sense

There's nothing that the fan base of the New York Yankees would love to do more than to get rid of Jacoby Ellsbury.

New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers Should Trade Jacoby Ellsbury for Justin Verlander

The New York Yankees have a bit of a situation once Jacoby Ellsbury returns from the disabled list. Aaron Hicks has a firm grasp on the starting center field job to the point where he could be on the 2017 All-Star team next month.

Fantasy Baseball: Why did we forget about Nick Castellanos?

Last year, Nick Castellanos continued his gradual productivity progression, posting an .831 OPS with 18 dingers in just 105 games. A broken hand cost him nearly two months, and he came back to a few games at 2016’s end. But we've forgotten about what he did for our fantasy baseball teams last year. In 2016, he hit .285/.331/.496 with 18 dingers, 54 runs and 58 RBI in just 110 games.[Jeff] With

Detroit Tigers: 2017 Projected Lineup

They started the off-season by showing their hand too early, proclaiming that they were trying to get younger and trim the payroll. As a result, the only player they really ended up moving in the off-season so far has been Cameron Maybin. After the Winter Meetings, the Tigers changed their tune, and Al Avila stated that they were still going to make a run at the playoffs. With Kansas City,
