For what Tigers are looking for, is Jake Peavy a fit?

2010: Roy Halladay wins the National League Cy Young Award in his first season with the Philadelphia Phillies after leading the NL in wins, complete games, shutouts and innings pitched, throwing a perfect game, and, for good measure, adding a no-hitter in the postseason. He is the fifth pitcher to win the award in both leagues, having been honored in the American League in 2003.

2011: The Manager of the Year Awards go to Kirk Gibson of the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League and the Tampa Bay Rays' Joe Maddon in the American League. Gibson wins in his first full season as a skipper, while it's a second time for Maddon to receive the award.

Max Scherzer of Washington becomes the 6th pitcher to win the award in both leagues when he prevails in the vote in the National League after going 20-7 during the season. In the American League, Boston's Rick Porcello, who went 22-4, is the winner over Justin Verlander of the Tigers in a very close race due to two Tampa sportswriters who leave Verlander off their ballot.

L.A. Angels interested in acquiring Detroit Tigers' Ian Kinsler.
Freep

https://www.blessyouboys.com/2017/11...-trade-targets
Tigers’ Ian Kinsler could be a trade fit for several MLB teams.
The veteran second baseman could be on the move this offseason.
BYBTB

https://www.blessyouboys.com/2017/11...-angels-tigers
MLB trade rumors: Ian Kinsler draws Angels’ interest.
Los Angeles has apparently discussed the idea of acquiring Kinsler internally.

Tigers' decisions blend analytics, scouting.
Avila says both sides merge into one list for roster moves.

Scherzer, Kluber win 3rd, 2nd Cy prizes.
MLB.com

Scherzer, 33, pitched for the Tigers from 2010-2014 before leaving in free agency to sign a seven-year, $210 million contract with the Nationals. Scherzer won his first Cy Young with the Tigers in 2013 and has added two more since joining Washington.

Justin Verlander, who was traded by the Tigers to the Houston Astros on Aug. 31, finished in fifth place. It's the sixth top-five finish of Verlander's career.
He won the Cy Young in 2011 and was runner-up in 2012 and 2016.
