Paying the Price: Tigers land Rays lefty

Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Add one more former American League Cy Young Award winner to the Detroit Tigers' star-studded rotation.

Capping a frenetic trade-deadline day that saw several other prominent hurlers changing teams, the Tigers have reportedly acquired David Price from the Tampa Bay Rays in a blockbuster three-team swap that also includes the Seattle Mariners.

Full details of the deal, which has yet to be confirmed by any of the clubs involved, are not available. However, CBSSports.com reported that the Tigers will send pitcher Drew Smyly to the Rays and center fielder Austin Jackson to the Mariners, with infielder Nick Franklin headed to Tampa Bay from Seattle.
