Tigers Land David Price in Three-Team Trade

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Detroit Tigers waited until the end of Thursday's 4 p.m. ET deadline for non-waiver trades to make the biggest splash of the afternoon.

The Tigers acquired former AL Cy Young Award winner David Price in a three-way trade with the Tampa Bay Rays and the Seattle Mariners.

Detroit sent outfielder Austin Jackson to the Mariners while the Rays received left-hander Drew Smyly from the Tigers and infielder Nick Franklin from Seattle.

The Rays also received infield prospect Willy Adames from the Tigers.

Price joins a Detroit rotation that already features former AL Cy Young winners Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander.  He is eligible to become a free agent after the 2015 season.

"David Price comes over and fills out an extremely strong rotation," Verlander said.
