Alex Wilson was the Tigers' most consistent reliever in 2015

The Tigers will be shopping for late inning bullpen help, but Wilson can be counted on in tight situations. When the Detroit Tigers sent right handed pitcher Rick Porcello to the Boston Red Sox last December, Alex Wilson barely got a mention as being one of the three players headed back to Detroit in the trade.

The main rumor never mentioned Upton specifically, but swirled around Tigers starter Rick Porcello heading to either Arizona or Seattle. No one is sure how exactly the Mariners were involved -- Upton had already negated a trade to Seattle earlier that offseason -- but the idea of landing a young outfielder of Upton's caliber was...
