Tigers GM on the cost of Valverde

Tigers GM Dave Dombrowski had this to say about the cost of giving up that first-round draft pick to sign Valverde:

"You look at every different circumstance. You never want to give up draft choices of any type -- first, second or third round. If you are thinking of doing that, you weigh where the draft pick is and the player involved. You also look at whether it's going to be a strong draft or a weak draft. The way I've always approached it is that you have to weigh a lot of factors."
