The Tigers have traded Ian Kinsler to the Anaheim Angels, according to a report.
This deal had a bit of a hiccup, however, as Buster Olney updated the initial tweet from Ken Rosenthal by clarifying that a deal was not yet complete.
Going to Detroit were Wilkel Hernandez a right-hander who is 18, and Troy Montgomery an outfielder who is 23.
The four-time All-Star and 2016 Gold Glove victor adds a steady and productive veteran to the Angels' lineup as they try to construct a playoff team around two-time AL MVP Mike Trout. He's in the final year of his contract and will earn $10 million for the 2018 season. The 35-year-old second baseman will set up shop back in the AL West next season.
The team's return for Kinsler is not known but likely will not match his performance because of a number of factors - his contract, the trade market and his no-trade clause - working against the Tigers this week.
This marks the second big move of the young winter for an Angels team that already added Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani.

On November 28, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of South Korea remarked that the reports have yet to be confirmed. Moon came to office at a time when relations between South Korea and China had hit a historic low.
In 139 games last season for Detroit, Kinsler hit.236 with 22 home runs and 52 RBI.
Los Angeles also made an August 31 trade with Atlanta for veteran second baseman Brandon Phillips, who became a free agent this offseason.
Kinsler is a career.273 hitter with 234 home runs and 839 runs batted in.
He was productive the last four years with the Tigers, although his batting average fell in 2017 to a career low.
However, the Tigers' run as contenders for the AL Pennant ended last season and they started to look at the future trading Upton, Justin Verlander and J.D. Martinez prior to September.
