Nate Robertson Traded to Marlins

The Tigers have traded Nate Robertson to the Marlins for minor league pitcher Jay Voss and cash considerations. Voss, a 22-year-old southpaw, was the Marlins' 8th round pick in the 2007 draft. He pitched a combined 49 2/3 innings at Single-A Jupiter and Double-A Jacksonville last year posting a 2.72 ERA, 46/18 K/BB ratio and 52.5 GB%.

The trade means that Jeremy Bonderman and Dontrelle Willis will round out the rotation. Eddie Bonine would probably be the first replacement if either fails. For the time being, Bonine will pitch out of the bullpen. The final staff looks like this:

Verlander
Porcello
Scherzer
Bonderman
Willis

Valverde
Zumaya
Perry
Coke
Ni
Bonine
Thomas

  1. I guess Nate was easiest to move. Bonine will got more than the usual amount of work as the long reliever out of the pen. section444

  2. You put Bonderman in there twice. I think you're forgetting Porcello :)

  3. Wow, I don't think I want Bonderman pitching twice in the rotation. :-) Thanks for pointing that out.
