Tigers acquire Washburn

The Detroit Tigers made a move at the trade deadline for the third time in the past four years by acquiring left-handed starting pitcher Jarrod Washburn from the Seattle Mariners for left-handers Luke French and Mauricio Robles.

Washburn has an 8-6 recorded and owns the 3rd lowest ERA in the American League at 2.64.

In his only start in Detroit this year, he pitched seven shutout innings while only giving up two hits.
