DET Seeking To Widen Porcello-Cespedes Deal

According to Jayson Stark of, the Red Sox and Tigers have the parameters of a Yoenis Cespedes for Rick Porcello deal worked out—except for one thing. That 'thing' is that Detroit wants to widen the deal so that they get a starter back in the package. It's unclear what that wider deal would net for Boston, but the Red Sox obviously have a bevy of young starters to offer the Tigers. Matt Barnes, Anthony Ranaudo or Allen Webster could be added into the mix, but, again, who the fourth player would be coming back to Boston is unclear. Hey, how about Jose Iglesias?
