How many wins can top trade targets add?

An immediate impact would come from Ian Kinsler, who doesn't necessarily figure in the Tigers' rebuild. And what about Justin Verlander?

Power Rankings: Tigers tie for biggest fall

Everything has fallen apart for the Tigers of late, culminating in an eight-game losing streak that ended Sunday. Poor pitching is the main culprit; their non-Michael Fulmer starters all have ERAs over 4.00

Cano HRs twice, Moore wins debut as Mariners top Tigers 9-6

Robinson Cano hit a grand slam and a two-run homer, Andrew Moore pitched seven effective innings to win in his big league debut and the Seattle Mariners held off the Detroit Tigers 9-6 on Thursday night for their fifth straight victory.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

It looks like the Mariners will climb over .500 for the first time all season as Robinson Cano cracks a grand slam off Francisco Rodriguez to give them a 9-3 lead. Cano actually shook his head on contact, thinking he had just missed it, but the ball sailed just over the fence. Did somebody say the balls might be full of rabbits?

Hinch about defensive shifts, Buster Olney and Jerry Crasnick discuss the Matt Adams conundrum in Atlanta, the Mets' displeasure with Yasiel Puig and more.

Sutcliffe: No problem with Dyson's bunt (1:19)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Jarrod Dyson breaks up Justin Verlander's perfect game with a one-out bunt single in the sixth, perfectly placed past Verlander and too far for Miguel Cabrera to make a play. And, no, Dyson didn't break any sacred rules. You're trying to win a game here.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

We're seeing vintage Justin Verlander tonight at Safeco Field. He's perfect through five innings with nine strikeouts, hitting 97 mph and blowing his fastball past the Mariners on several occasions. He's at 76 pitches, so he'll run up a high pitch count if he keeps this going.
