Tigers trade Josh Anderson to Royals
The Tigers have traded outfielder Josh Anderson to the Royals for cash considerations. Anderson’s contract was designated for assignment last week. The Royals and Yankees both had interest, but the Yankees apparently weren’t willing to offer up a prospect in the deal. The Royals also came ahead of New York in the waiver claims process.
Kansas City will be the third team for Anderson this calendar year and the fourth in his career. Detroit acquired him from Atlanta in the final week of Spring Training.
Anderson batted .242 with the Tigers with
four doubles, four triples and 16 RBIs in 74 games, covering 165
at-bats. The 26-year-old stole 13 bases in 15 attempts.
