FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: TRADE FOR ALFREDO SIMON HAS TIGERS MOVING AWAY FROM MAX SCHERZER

                                         

According to a team official close to the Detroit Tigers front office, the trade for Alfredo Simon early Thursday can be viewed as evidence that the team is not going to pay a heavy price to retain Max Scherzer.  Later on in the day Thursday, GM Dave Dombrowski confirmed this thinking in saying the team is not actively pursuing him in free agency despite dealing away Rick Porcello. 

Analysis:  It has been widely assumed all along that the New York Yankees will do what they have to do to sign Scherzer but if the Tigers truly are out of it, it could be tough for him to get the kind of contract he rejected from the team last May.  Stay tuned.
