No word yet on return, but reported as official on MLBTR.

Understandably soon to evaluate, but this certainly doesn't help the Tigers. Not sure what they could receive to make it better for the 2014 Tigers.

They could slot Smyly into the rotation as the lefty, but then that removes him from the bullpen where he was incredibly valuable in 2013.

Im guessing they are planning on adding a better starter< as there in there win now Mode.
Maybe a run at Tanaka?

You would think Fister could net a huge haul but it didn't sound that great. I am slightly puzzled. Plus He is going to make around 7 mil. Is anyone else puzzled or am I over valuing Dougie Doug?

What was the return?


And I don't think you're overvaluing him, he's really good.

Yeah I don't understand either, why he's been flipped twice in three years.

Steve Lombardozzi, Ian Krol, and Robbie Ray.

Bet some will be flipped for a closer

Experts are killing the Tigers for the poor return. Saying Nat's stole Fister and I agree.

I also agree on the poor return, but I bet the Tigers have another move to be played(Cano or Tanaka)?

I agree, but how does 7 million dollars stop signing Cano?
It has to be another trade or Tanaka,Jimenez,Santana or Garza

This is a bad, bad, bad trade for the Tigers and I like it. A utility man and two middling prospects for a #3 pitcher is ABSOLUTELY terrible. There is no way the Tigers win this trade. Even if Ray and Krol do well. Zero chance.

Just got Kinsler, so Cano seems out.

Ray is much more than a middling prospect (would probably be in the Twins' top 20, which would make him a Tigger's top 10 prospect) and Krol is not a prospect but a decent set up guy. Cannot see the Tiggers using him as a closer though...

I do not understand at all. The Tigers still have a great rotation but they should have received something worthwhile back. That's one of the key parts of trading from a strength.

[FONT=Helvetica Neue]Robbie Ray is the number 5 prospect according to Baseball America. Here are some thoughts on the guy ([/FONT]http://www.baseballamerica.com/minors/2014-washington-nationals-top-10-prospects-with-scouting-reports/).
[FONT=Helvetica Neue]Posted Image[/FONT]
[FONT=Helvetica Neue]Background: Ray first made a name for himself by flashing mid-90s heat on the high school showcase circuit, but he pitched mostly in the 87-91 mph range over his first three pro seasons. But his velocity jumped in 2013, and his prospect status jumped with it. He ranked as the No. 16 prospect in the high Class A Carolina League, and he more than held his own as a 21-year-old in the Double-A Eastern League following a midseason promotion.

Robbie Ray is very good, so what the hell is everyone talking about? They got two other guys to fill out their roster. I am not sure why this is so bad for Detroit. Ray should be up in 2015 at the latest and in the meantime the Tigers can pursue a pitcher.

I would put Ray above Trevor May, easily.

I would trade 5 Trevor Mays for Fister so that isn't saying much.
