Alex Bregman Newsbeat

Monday, August 05, 2019

Detroit declined trades for Javier Baez, Alex Bregman to keep Michael Fulmer in 2017

Is it better as a general manager to be haunted by the trades you never made or the ones you did?

For Tigers general manager Al Avila, the answer may be the former.

In 2017, with a chance to acquire some of baseball’s most marketable and dominant players, Avila chose instead to hang onto a pitcher whose career has since gone wildly off track.

In a rather damning report on Avila’s ability to maneuver in baseball’s trade market, the Detroit Free Press learned that the GM who just received a contract extension previously refused deals for Cubs shortstop Javier Baez and Astros third baseman Alex Bregman.

For those of you who are fans of “The Road Not Taken”.
