Tigers get Betemit from Royals

With Brandon Inge struggling at third base, the Tigers have acquired Wilson Betemit from the Royals in a deal for two minor leaguers, the teams announced Wednesday.

To get Betemit, who hit .281 in 57 games for the Royals, the Tigers gave up a pair of players who were in Class A, pitcher Antonio Cruz and catcher Julio Rodriguez. Neither was considered to be one of the team's top prospects.

The Tigers have had just a .500 OPS out of their third basemen (mostly Inge, but also Don Kelly) this year. The only team worse has been the Mariners (mostly Chone Figgins), at .463.

The Tigers signed Inge to a two-year, $11.5 million contract last winter, but he has been awful offensively all season. Inge is hitting just .177, and has hit only one home run.

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski told reporters in Detroit that he considers Kelly to be ahead of Inge on the Tigers' depth chart at third base. Dombrowski said that the Tigers would make a roster move once Betemit reports on Thursday, while refusing to commit on Inge's future with the team.

The Tigers went to the World Series with Inge as their third baseman in 2006, but he hit 27 home runs that year. He hit 27 again in 2009, but slipped to 13 last year and had just the one in 215 at-bats this season.

Betemit got the pt because he was hitting and frankly fielding as good as Aviles. At the time moose was brought up Betemit had the highest BA on the team if I remember correctly.  Moose has done nothing offensively. much like Aviles output prior to being sent down. Watching all this is somewhat unsavory, like watching sausage being made. In my opinion better not trade Cabrera. unless you get an extraordinary player, ready to play. In fact,.. not sure I would trade Cabrera anyway. He's a keeper unless you think the stupid KC fans will show up for mascot races and kissing shots and the poorest announcing I've ever heard. Went to two games of Detroit series last September in KC. pathetic, pathetic, experience for MLB. Truly embarassing.
