But, that doesn’t mean Kendrick and general manager Kevin Towers aren’t willing to listen to offers.
And, according to ESPN analyst Jim Bowden, the Detroit Tigers have all the necessary pieces to make an offer that could change Kendrick’s mind.
Bowden named the Tigers among five teams that he said have the trade chips needed to fit the D-backs’ long-term needs. If Detroit is truly interested in acquiring Upton, Bowden said the Tigers could propose an offer he donned as “probably the best fit for Towers.”
Not surprisingly, the trade offer he suggested included the club’s No. 1 prospect.
