Tigers acquire Jarrod Washburn from Mariners for two players

MLB Network is reporting that the Mariners have sent Jarrod Washburn to the Detroit Tigers in exchange for pitchers Lucas French and Mauricio Robles. French is a left hander that has seen time in the majors and will probably be added right to Seattle's rotation. Robles, also a lefty, has spent four seasons in the minor leagues.

Washburn had been mostly rumored to be headed to the Yankees, but New York was not willing to part with the prospects Seattle was seeking, like pitchers Joba Chamberlain Phil Hughes, catcher Jesus Montero and outfielder Austin Jackson.
