Tiger rumors: listening on Rick Porcello

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

The Tigers are listening to offers on Rick Porcello.

The Tigers continue to take calls on right-handed pitcher Rick Porcello, reports Lynn Henning of The Detroit News.

The team has been listening to offers on Porcello all Spring, with the Rangers and Padres mentioned recently as potential landing spots for the right-hander.

The team has reportedly not initiated any talks on the pitcher, but they have been actively listening. It appears as though a trade is likely, but the landing spot and return are yet to be determined. Porcello could be a nice acquisition for a team, as he is still young, yet relatively proven in the league.

The Tigers refuted reports that they had offered him to the Padres for either Luke Gregerson or Huston Street, as the team has remained adamant that they have not actually proposed a deal of their own for their young pitcher.

Dave Dombrowski, Tigers general manager, spoke very highly of Porcello in the report. He went as far as to call Porcello a "premium pitching prospect." While that may be overkill, it certainly isn't far off track.
