Angels acquire Justin Upton from Tigers

According to the latest Major League Baseball trade rumors, Detroit is looking to deal their ace by the end of Thursday. He reports that the Houston Astros have remained in contact with the Tigers for Verlander for the past few days. With another key piece moved, the Tigers appear to be in a rapid deconstruction of their team in a strong effort to rebuild for the future. Tigers will also send cash to L.A.in the deal this season. He now has a 10-8 record with a 3.82 ERA, although he has been red-hot since the All-Star break. He's limited hitters to a.186 batting average, walking 2.4 batters per nine innings.

Maybin has struggled to a.220/.292/.271 line (three extra-base hits) in 18 games since his return from a knee injury earlier this month, but he swiped 25 bags and got on base at almost a.350 clip during the first half. Should he play out the remainder of his contract, the Angels will pick up the rest. He will be making $28 million each of the next two seasons, after which he has a $22 million option for the 2020 season that vests if he finishes in the top 5 of Cy Young voting in 2019. Only players acquired before September 1 are eligible for postseason rosters. In recent weeks, they have welcomed back left-handers Tyler Skaggs and Andrew Heaney to their rotation, and they hope to add right-hander Garrett Richards next month.

The LA Angels were extremely quiet over the course of the trade deadline.

Verlander does hold no-trade rights so any potential trade would have to be approved by him in order to become official.
