In the wake of Thursday's trade to the Angels, Justin Upton says his contract opt-out is "something we haven't discussed". Without Upton, the team receives almost $90 million in salary relief - though they likely would have received that anyways if Upton opted out of his contract at the end of the season, like many expected.

In 459 at bats this season, Upton is hitting.279 with 28 home runs and 94 RBIs.

A couple hours later, the Angels confirmed the reports that Upton was traded to the Halos.

He lost most ground among conservatives, Republican men, and white voters without a university degree. Comey - was associated with these terms: "serious"; "hurry up"; and "hate to have his job".

He will have four years and $88.5 million due on the deal at the end of this season, which is around what his market value could be as a free agent.

From the perspective of the Tigers, Upton's deal was a no-brainer. Once that happened, the Tigers resumed talks with teams to trade the outfielder.

Long, 23, is 8-8 with a 2.69 ERA in 26 minor league starts in 2017. They have to get to the postseason first, of course, but their chances are much better with Upton in tow.

The Angels are now 1.5 games back of an American League wild card spot.

As one of the American League's best pitchers for more than a decade, Verlander is being pursued by multiple teams that believe they can win the 2017 World Series. The Tigers agreed to pay the Angels $747,951 to cover a portion of the $3,747,951 remaining in Upton's $22,125,000 salary this year.

Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, pictured in the first inning of a game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on August 4, 2017 in Baltimore, is still being mentioned in trade rumors after the trade deadline. The Tigers are likely to recall Jim Adduci to help bolster outfield depth for their weekend series with the Cleveland Indians. If they want to make a bolder move, they could select the contract of a prospect like Mike Gerber or Christin Stewart and give them a look in the outfield.
