DETROIT (AP) -The Tigers acquired right-hander Armando Galarraga from the Texas Rangers on Tuesday in exchange for outfielder Michael Hernandez.
Galarraga was part of the December 2005 trade that sent Alfonso Soriano to the Washington Nationals. He made his major league debut with Texas late last season.
Galarraga had a 6.23 ERA in one start and two relief appearances after spending most of the season at Double-A Frisco, where he went 9-6 with a 4.02 ERA in 23 games.
Hernandez saw action with both Class A Lakeland and Double-A Erie during the 2007 season. In 134 games, he hit .259 with 24 homers and 106 RBIs.
