The Detroit News' Lynn Henning expects Rick Porcello to be traded following the re-signing of Anibal Sanchez.
Henning notes that Drew Smyly has the leg up on Porcello for the No. 5 starter job, and the Tigers "won't warehouse a starter in the minors." The 24-year-old right-hander projects to make between $4-5 million in arbitration this winter and is under team control through 2014. Porcello has reportedly received plenty of trade interest, mostly from National League clubs, though CBS Sports' Danny Knobler says the Rangers could be a possibility.
