As Monday's trade deadline approaches, six to eight teams remain in on Detroit Tigers left-handed reliever Justin Wilson, including the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports.

Rumor CentralCrasnick adds that the chances of a Wilson-Justin Verlander package deal with any club between now and Monday are not good. He lists catcher Alex Avila as another option more likely to be dealt than Verlander.

Wilson, 29, has a 2.75 ERA and 12 saves in 41 appearances for the Tigers this season.
