The Detroit Tigers are progressing towards a deal to make AJ Hinch their next manager, according to sources.

The deal has not been finalized.

The Houston Astros fired Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow on Jan. 13. Major League Baseball suspended Hinch for the 2020 season, with the suspension ending at the conclusion of the World Series on Tuesday night, for his role in the Astros' sign-stealing scandal.
