The first AL Central Domino has fallen - Tigers trade

Unread postby dazindiansfanuk » Mon Jul 23, 2012 5:57 pm

4:59pm: The teams also swap the picks they obtained in last week's competitive balance lottery, Peter Gammons of MLB Network tweets. The Marlins obtain prospects Rob Brantly and Brian Flynn along with Turner, Gammons tweets.

4:41pm: The Tigers have addressed their two most pressing needs with one trade, acquiring Omar Infante and Anibal Sanchez from the Marlins in a deal that will send top pitching prospect Jacob Turner to Miami. Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports first reported the trade, which suggests the Marlins are willing to look to 2013 and beyond following a disappointing 44-51 start to the season (on Twitter).

I guess, it's more like the second domino after the White Sox already acquired Myers from Houston.

Tigers paid a much bigger price here than they paid for Fister, but Sanchez is one of the most underrated pitchers in all of baseball.
