DETROIT - The Detroit Tigers have acquired second baseman Omar Infante and right-hander Anibal Sanchez from Miami, sending 21-year-old righty Jacob Turner and two minor leaguers to the Marlins.
The deal gives the Tigers a likely solution to their season-long problems at second base and adds another experienced arm to their starting rotation. The trade underscores Detroit's desire to win now after signing slugger Prince Fielder in the off-season. Turner was considered the Tigers' top pitching prospect and earned his first major league win Sunday.
Miami also receives catcher Rob Brantley and left-hander Brian Flynn in the deal.
Detroit is coming off a three-game sweep of Chicago that propelled them into first place in the AL Central.
