DETROIT – After a busy day for the Detroit Tigers at the Winter Meetings, Tigers President and GM revealed the team is no longer pursuing pitcher Max Scherzer.

When asked about the situation, Dave Dombrowski said, "I guess anything can happen but we're not in active pursuit of that situation at this time."

Scherzer was 18-5 in 2014, throwing 252 strikeouts with a 3.15 ERA. He is reportedly seeking a deal worth $200 million.

Earlier Thursday, the Tigers traded Rick Porcello to Boston for outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and pitcher Alex Wilson. They also traded for Alfredo Simon, sending Suarez to the Reds.
