Kevin Whelan told me an interesting story a few minutes ago.

He had no idea the Tigers were considering trading him to the Yankees until Detroit director of minor league operations Dan Lunetta whelan_kevin.jpgcalled to tell him the deal was done.

“I was getting married the next day,” Whelan said. “I couldn’t believe it. Then Brian Cashman called a few minutes later. I was running around getting ready for the wedding.”

Kevin and his wife Adria were married without a hitch the next day and honeymooned in South Africa.

Now he’s in Tampa.

“I’m glad it happened in retrospect,” he said. “The people here have been great to me.”
