Player Notes
Tigers general manager Al Avila said Wednesday that trade interest in Ian Kinsler has died down.

Advice: The Los Angeles Times' Andy McCullough reported earlier on Wednesday that the Dodgers had checked in on Kinsler. They have shown reported interest in him at various points during the early offseason. Nothing came of that kicking of the tires, though, at least not yet. One potential sticking point, here: Kinsler's agent said in mid-November that he would only waive his partial no-trade clause if he is given a contract extension. Should the Tigers ultimately trade him, Dixon Machado would have a shot at the starting second base job. Machado would also have a shot at the starting shortstop job should the team move Jose Iglesias.

Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Dodgers are "kicking the proverbial tires" on Ian Kinsler and Brian Dozier.

Advice: It doesn't appear that there is much smoke on either front at this juncture, though. Just who will start at second for the Dodgers come the beginning of spring training remains up in the air, as Chase Utley is currently a free agent. Kike Hernandez could be in for an increased role next season should the Dodgers be unable to fill the position via either a trade or free agency.
