It’s great to get news straight from the source.
Although Justin Verlander has been involved in many trade talks the past week, the starting pitcher assured fans nothing has happened yet.
He went as far to give photographic evidence on Twitter.

Yu Darvish also kept Rangers’ fans updated about his status on Twitter.

Unfortunately for the fans, Darvish was dealt right at the deadline to the MLB-best Los Angeles Dodgers.
On the flip side, Verlander wasn’t traded at the deadline, but the Tigers may still trade him at the non-waiver deadline any time in August.
According to Bleacher Report, Detroit was actively trying to trade Verlander to the Dodgers and the Astros the past few days.
The former Cy Young winner and MVP has been in Detroit his whole career. He came second in Cy Young voting last year.
Darvish has also spent his whole career with one team, the Rangers. He is a four-time All-Star.
