Marlins acquire Nate Robertson

Foxsports.com's Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Marlins have acquired Nate Robertson and cash in exchange for left-handed pitcher Jay Voss. Robertson has a 6.14 ERA over the past two seasons, but it is possible a return to the NL and his former team may turn his misfortune around.  

Voss, 23, a former 8th round pick in the 2007 draft, has thrived since joining the bullpen, posting a 2.97 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP in 36 1/3 innings at Double-A last season. He could emerge as a left-handed specialist down the line for the TIgers.

The Tigers will be forced to pay 9.6 million of the 10 million remaining on Robertson's contract, so it is actually not a bad move for the young Marlins. If Robertson can rack up anywhere close to 160-170 innings, it would be great considering the Marlins will pay him the league minimum.
