Tigers acquired RHP Alex Wilson, OF Yoenis Cespedes, and RHP Gabe Speier from the Red Sox for RHP Rick Porcello.
Wilson had a promising 1.91 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, and 19/5 K/BB ratio in 28 1/3 innings this past season out of the Boston bullpen. The Tigers needed all the bullpen help they could get, and the 28-year-old Wilson should be a nice addition to middle relief. Dec 11 - 12:58 PM
