Tigers Acquire Joakim Soria From Rangers For Pitching Prospects

Detroit Tigers v New York Yankees - Game 5The Detroit Tigers have acquired some much needed depth to their bullpen in the Texas Rangers’ closer Joakim Soria. Soria, a former Kansas City Royal, has 17 saves on the season for the Rangers. Texas in return is getting two of Detroit’s top prospects in Jake Thompson and Corey Knebel.

Look for Soria to take over the closing duties for Detroit if Joe Nathan continues to struggle.
