Tigers acquire Wilson Betemit from Royals

The Tigers have acquired third baseman Wilson Betemit from the Royals in exchange for two minor leaguers, according to FOXSPORTS.com. Betemit is hitting .281 with 3 home runs and a .341 on--base percentage in 57 games this season.

The Royals acquire lefty reliever Antonio Cruz, who has a 2-6 record with a 3.11 ERA this season, and catcher Julio Rodriguez, who is hitting .283 in Class A.

There were whispers that the Tigers were looking at Mets third baseman David Wright, but this trade indicates that the Tigers have a bigger move in mind or the Mets' asking price is too high for the Tigers.
