Tigers Aquire Jhonny Perolta for Pitching Prospect Giovanni Soto

+

Minor but curious move for the Tigers, who clearly feel they aren't out of it yet. Peralta, wherever he plays, will be a better bat than one of their many replacement level guys now starting. Soto is a late round pick that has stood out in his limited time in pro ball but that still has a long way to go before he sees any time on a big league roster: The 6-foot-3, 155-pound Soto, selected in the 21st round of the 2009 Draft, pitched in the Gulf Coast League last season and was a perfect 4-0 with a 1.18 ERA in 13 games. All in all a "win now" move for the Tigers, but a half-assed one at that. Could be a precursor for more moves however and they are a better team now than before this trade, although only slightly.
