Tigers and Pirates trade prospects

The Tigers have traded Andrew Oliver to the pirates for catcher Ramon Cabrera.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have traded catcher Ramon Cabrera to the Detroit Tigers in exchange for left- handed pitcher, Andrew Oliver, according to Rob Biertempfel.

Andrew Oliver has posted gaudy numbers (0-5, 7.11ERA, 1.83WHIP) in 31 2/3 innings across two seasons in the Major Leagues with the Detroit Tigers. The Oklahoma State product went 5-9, while holding opponents to a .235 batting average for the AAA Toledo Mud Hens of the International League in 2012.

Furthermore, Oliver came close to striking out a batter per inning, however, he will need to improve upon his control to cut down on his 88 walks over 118 innings last season.

Ramon Cabrera, 23, has shown offensive promise in the minor leagues with a .292 career batting average and an on-base percentage of .360 spanning several minor-league levels.

The son of Alex Cabrera, who was the NPB's 2002 Pacific League MVP with the Seibu Lions, will need to improve defensively if he would like to see action in the Major Leagues.
