David Price is now heading to the Motor City. The Tigers have acquired Price from the Rays in a three-team trade with the Mariners, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com has confirmed. Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports first reported the deal.
Austin Jackson is going to the Mariners and both Drew Smyly and Nick Franklin are going to the Rays in the other legs of the deal.
The Indians were in the hunt for price especially after the trade of Justin Masterson Wednesday but the deal just didn't happen.
