As expected, the Detroit Tigers traded star second baseman Ian Kinsler, dealing him to the California Angels, the Los Angeles Times reports. The trade was confirmed late Wednesday night by both teams. It's unclear if he attached any conditions to the deal. The Tigers are receiving right-hander Wilkel Hernandez and centerfielder Troy Montgomery from the Angels in return, according to the Detroit Free Press.
All of the teams mentioned above are in need of a 2nd baseman, but it appeared that the Angels won over the ear of the Tigers front office. Los Angeles will also pay Kinsler's $11 million salary for the upcoming season. Kinsler should be an upgrade at second base, where projected starter Danny Espinosa batted.162 with six homers in 77 games last season.
The four-time All-Star and 2016 Gold Glove victor adds a steady and productive veteran to the Angels' lineup as they try to construct a playoff team around two-time AL MVP Mike Trout.
Kinsler, a four-time All-Star, hit just.236 with 22 home runs and 52 RBIs last season, but he had a.288/.348/.484 slash line with 28 home runs and 83 RBIs in 2016. Kinsler is a career.273 hitter with a.342 on-base percentage. The 35-year-old hit.275 with 78 home runs in 607 games.
The Tigers acquired Kinsler from the Texas Rangers after the 2013 season in exchange for Prince Fielder and cash.
However, the Tigers' run as contenders for the AL Pennant ended last season and they started to look at the future trading Upton, Justin Verlander and J.D. Martinez prior to September.
