The Miami Marlins have traded second baseman Omar Infante and right-handed starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez to the Detroit Tigers in exchange for Jacob Turner, Rob Brantly, Brian Flynn and the Tigers compensation pick from the competitive balance lottery. Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports was first to report the framework of the deal and Peter Gammons of broke the full details of the deal.

The Marlins are extremely disappointed in the way the team has played this season after spending money on several top free agents in the off-season. The Tigers double-down on being "all-in" on the season and improve quite a bit with this deal in the short-term.
