Tigers trade Ryan Perry to the Nationals for Collin Balester
According to Jason Beck the Detroit Tigers have traded Ryan Perry to the Washington Nationals for Collin Balester.
Ryan Perry was a 1st round pick by Detroit in 2008, but had not found the expected success in his pro career which included a 5.35 ERA in 36 games during the 2011 season.
Balester was a 4th round pick by the Expos (now Nationals) and like Perry, Balester has struggled to find success including a 2011 season where he had a 4.54 ERA in 23 games.
Balester is likely to compete for one of the last available bullpen spots as a long reliever for the Tigers, according to Jason Beck
