According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Padres and Twins both inquired about Jose Iglesias this offseason.

Obviously nothing came from these discussions but it reinforces the idea that no one on Detroit is untouchable. Iglesias, Miguel Cabrera, J.D. Martinez, Victor Martinez and Justin Verlander have all popped up in trade rumors this offseason. It's no secret the Tigers are trying to cut payroll but getting Iglesias' $4.1 million salary off the books wouldn't make much of a dent. Iglesias set career-highs with four homers and 32 RBI last season but hit for his lowest average since 2012.

Braves signed OF Sanders Commings to a minor league contract.

Commings was a fifth-round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013 but his NFL career lasted all of two games. The former defensive back was an accomplished baseball player in high school, hitting .520 in his senior year before being selected by the Diamondbacks in the 37th round of the 2008 Draft. He passed on signing and instead went on to play college football at the University of Georgia. It's doubtful Commings will advance past the lower levels of the minor leagues, but it will be interesting to watch his development.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Dodgers "asked" about Justin Verlander this offseason but ultimately thought his price tag was too high.

Verlander owns a home in Beverly Hills with fiancee Kate Upton and it sounds like he would have been willing to waive his no-trade clause to join the Dodgers. However, the Dodgers are trying to get under the luxury tax and weren't willing to pay Verlander's $28 million salary. Though a deal for Verlander was never close, the two sides could resume talks at a later date. Verlander enjoyed a resurgent 2016 campaign, finishing second in AL Cy Young voting behind former teammate Rick Porcello.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Mets "seriously discussed" trading Michael Conforto straight up for Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez during the offseason.

It's unclear when these discussions took place though the Mets ultimately balked because Martinez is entering the last year of his contract. The Mets have a glut of outfielders but at least two (Jay Bruce and Curtis Granderson) are likely to leave in free agency next winter if they aren't traded before then. After hitting just .220 last year, Conforto isn't a lock for the Mets' Opening Day roster.

Mariners manager Scott Servais said he's been most impressed by Mitch Haniger in the early portion of spring training.

"He has a plan every time he’s in the outfield, on the bases or in the batter’s box," said Servais. "It’s a very professional approach." Haniger finally made the big leagues with the Diamondbacks last year, hitting .229 with five homers and 17 RBI over 34 appearances. After trading Seth Smith, letting Franklin Gutierrez walk in free agency and waiving Nori Aoki this offseason, Haniger should open the year as Seattle's starting right fielder. Haniger may not develop into a fantasy asset right away but he's someone to keep an eye on.
