Marlins Trade Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante to the Tigers
The Marlins are now sellers.
Just an hour before today’s game, the Marlins trade Omar Infante and Anibal Sanchez to the Detroit Tigers for RHP Jacob Turner, C Bob Brantly, LHP Brian Flynn, and an exchange in compensation draft picks. Sanchez was to become a free agent at the end of the season while Infante was signed through 2013.
Turner, who just earned his first Major League win is considered one of the top prospects in baseball. Brantly is also highly touted and provides the Marlins with organizational depth at catcher.
