(12/2/2013) The Tigers acquired a trio of young players from the Nationals Monday, in exchange for veteran starting pitcher Doug Fister. The Nationals sent infielder Stephen Lombardozzi, reliever Ian Krol and pitching prospect Robbie Ray to Detroit, according to the Washington Post.
Lombardozzi is the only player with more than one season of major-league experience in the deal for the Tigers. He carries a .264/.297/.342 line in 257 games, and hit .259 with just two home runs and 22 RBI in 290 at-bats last season.
Krol appeared in 32 games as a rookie, posting a 3.95 ERA in 27 1/3 innings. He struck out 22 batters and walked just eight in that span.
Ray went 11-5 with a 3.36 ERA between Class A Potomac and Double-A Harrisburg. He was ranked as the National's No. 5 prospect according to Baseball America.
