Nate Burleson said he's willing to take a pay cut to stay with Detroit. "I put that out there early. That's pretty much the only option. Take less money or release me. I'm willing to do that," he said. "I'll definitely renegotiate and try to outwork my contract, just because I love this team. But at the end of the day I don't control any of that, especially with a new guy coming in."
Tigers are in discussions with Jordan Zimmermann.
There is nothing definite to this point, but reports have surfaced that Jordan Zimmermann is in "serious" discussions with the Tigers. Zimmermann would form a nice one-two punch with Justin Verlander atop the rotation in Detroit. Zimmermann was 13-10 in 2015 with a 3.66 ERA and 164 strikeouts in 201 2/3 innings pitched.
