Tigers trade Josh Anderson to Royals
The Tigers have traded outfielder Josh Anderson to the Royals for cash
considerations. Anderson’s contract was designated for assignment last
week to make room for Carlos Guillen. The Royals and Yankees both had interest, but the Yankees
reportedly weren’t willing to offer up a prospect in the deal.
Kansas City will be the third team for Anderson this calendar year and
the fourth in his career. Detroit acquired him from Atlanta in the
final week of Spring Training.
Anderson batted .242 with the Tigers with
four doubles, four triples and 16 RBIs in 74 games, covering 165
at-bats. The 26-year-old stole 13 bases in 15 attempts.
