The Tigers have acquired outfielder Josh Anderson in a trade with the Braves. The Tigers sent minor league pitcher Rudy Darrow to Atlanta in Monday's deal. With the news, Jordan Schafer becomes the Braves' starting center fielder to start the season. Darrow played at Double-A Erie and Class A West Michigan last year. The 25-year-old right-hander finished 1-1 with a 2.63 ERA in 14 appearances at Erie and went 4-2 with a 1.85 ERA in 33 games with West Michigan. "He's a prospect, absolutely," GM Frank Wren said. "We feel good about getting an arm like that."
The Detroit Tigers reassigned RHP Rudy Darrow, LHP Jon Kibler and C Jeff Kunkel to minor league camp Thursday.
The Tigers announced they have invited 13 non-roster minor leaguers to take part in big league camp. There are four pitchers, four catchers, four infielders and one outfielder on the list. Right-handers Rudy Darrow, Casey Fien and Ryan Perry, left-hander Jon Kibler and catchers Alex Avila, Jeff Kunkel, Dane K. Sardinha and Max Pierre will all report to camp Feb. 13, along with the rest of the Tigers' pitchers and catchers. Infielders Cale Iorg, Don Kelly, Will Rhymes and Scott Sizemore and outfielder Alexis Gomez will be among the position players reporting Feb. 16.
