DETROIT — Al Avila spoke to reporters to open the Tigers winter caravan at Comerica Park on Thursday.

In a small room filled with cameras and media attention, the Tigers general manager laid out expectations for 2020.

Detroit continues to rebuild, but Avila admitted he has no stars left to trade.

"We were gonna make some mistakes along the way. If you were gonna be perfect... obviously you wouldn't be human," he said.

"As far as holding a guy back because of service time... I've never been taught that way from my predecessor, and I don't work that way," he said.
