Tigers acquire SS Andrew Romine from Angels in trade
The Detroit Tigers traded left-handed pitcher Jose Alvarez to the Los Angeles Angels of Anahiem, in exchange for shortstop Andrew Romine.
Romine helps fill the void left by the injury to Jose Iglesias, who is expected to miss most or all of the 2014 season with stress fractures in each of his shins.
Alvarez was one of a MLB-low six starters used by the Tigers last season, getting spot starts in place of the injured Anibal Sanchez. He was named the organization's Minor League Pitcher of the Year after signing a minor-league deal in the offseason.
