Tigers' Elvin Rodriguez: Traded to Tigers

Rodriguez was sent to the Tigers on Friday as the player to be named in the trade that sent Justin Upton to the Angels.

Rodriguez has experienced a lot of success in the minors, posting a 2.94 ERA and 1.08 WHIP over 40 career games, but he has thrown just three times above the rookie level, so it remains to be seen how he fares when he moves into full-season ball. The Tigers will have plenty of time to figure that out, though, as Rodriguez will not turn 20 until next March.
