The early buzz just after the season ended was that the Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers could become sellers this offseason, and they'd listen to offers on all their players, even the stars. Well, now know the early suitors for these stars.

The Boston Red Sox, Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers are positioned well and eager to make a run at the best White Sox and Tigers players. Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski said he would love to land Chris Sale, Justin Verlander or Miguel Cabrera if he can do so without giving up Yoan Moncada or Michael Kopech in strong prospect packages. Meanwhile, the Astros are committed to landing a middle-of-the-lineup bat like Cabrera, and the Dodgers need a right-handed slugger and already have been linked with Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez.

One thing is for sure: All three teams have enough in the prospect department to land one of these impact players this offseason.
