Paying the Price: Tigers land Rays lefty
Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Add one more former American League Cy Young Award winner to the Detroit Tigers' star-studded rotation.
Capping a frenetic trade-deadline day that saw several other prominent hurlers changing teams, the Tigers have acquired David Price from the Tampa Bay Rays in a blockbuster three-team swap that also includes the Seattle Mariners.
To obtain the 2012 AL Cy Young Award recipient, the Tigers sent pitcher Drew Smyly and shortstop prospect Willy Adames to the Rays. Tampa Bay also received infielder Nick Franklin from the Mariners, who got center fielder Austin Jackson from Detroit.
