The Tigers decided to lock down Anibal Sanchez for five-years, $80M.  Which once again opens the door to trading Rick Porcello.  According to Jim Bowden via Twitter, the Padres are one of the teams interested.

Ben Nicholson-Smith of mlbtraderumors.com believes the largest needs for the Tigers are a lefty reliever and a right-handed corner outfielder.

Porcello was a first-round selection of the Tigers in 2007, and blew through the minors, making his major league debut April 9th, 2009.  Porcello attained super-2 status in 2012, but he is under team control through 2015.  MLBTR projects his 2013 salary at $4.7MM
