Rays - Tigers

Recommended Posts

Tampa Bay Rays send:

 

MR Joe Smith (MLB)

C Stephen Vogt (MLB)

 

Detroit Tigers send:

 

RF Chih-Hsien Chiang (MLB)

3B Jhonny Peralta (AAA)

 

We made this deal to acquire a bullpen arm in Joe Smith. Chiang became expendable after getting Bailey from the Astros. We also got Vogt who will be a utility guy at C, 1B, LF. I love his personality and will help the clubhouse chemistry. Lastly, we gave up Peralta who's probably behind Zimmerman on our roster or we might just look for a 3B option in the free agent market.

 

Thanks, John, for the deal.

Rays confirm. We made the deal to get OF Chiang, I am really excited to add him to the lineup. Pitching was our strength, so we naturally dealt from that. We have got plenty of arms for the pen and I actually have a minor league C who is akin to Vogt in my eyes. Peralta is the kicker, he will help as a nice backup IF

 

Thanks Pat!
