Tigers' Max Scherzer open to extension


It was reported that the Detroit Tigers were willing to trade Max Scherzer a few days ago. However, it seems as though the AL CY Young award winner doesn’t want to leave Detroit. According to an article on ESPN.com,

Agent Scott Boras, typically not known for negotiating contract extensions for high-profile players on the cusp of free agency, said Wednesday that Scherzer will keep an open mind if the Tigers approach him with a multiyear offer in the coming months.

 

“They know Max likes it there,” Boras told ESPN.com. “We would have to sit down and talk about their plans for the future. But when you have a player who likes playing where he’s playing and an ownership that has been what Mike Ilitch has been in Detroit, it’s certainly something we would listen to.”

Scherzer had a very impressive 2013 season, with a 21-3 record and a 2.90 ERA. It would be wise for the Tigers to keep Scherzer, however if they trade him now, they could get a couple big pieces to help their roster.

What do you think the Tigers should do with Scherzer?
