Francisco Martinez Rumors


Tigers Acquire Francisco Martinez, Designate Berry

The Tigers announced that the club has acquired outfielder/third baseman Francisco Martinez from the Mariners in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations by June 15.  To make room for Martinez on the roster, the club has designated Quintin Berry for assignment.

Martinez, 22, was sent to the Mariners as part of the six-player trade that brought Doug Fister to the Tigers around the 2011 trade deadline.  Martinez, who has hit .255/.309/.355 in parts of three seasons at Double-A, will report to Single-A Lakeland.

Berry, 28, has been with Detroit's Triple-A affiliate this season with a slash line of .168/.278/.234.  The former fifth-round choice had 330 plate appearances for the Tigers last season and hit .258/.330/.354 with two homers.
