DETROIT (AP) - Dave Dombrowski's latest trade also felt like one of his most predictable.
There was simply no way the Detroit general manager was going to sit idly by without addressing his team's bullpen.
The Tigers added one of the game's better relievers in a trade earlier this week, acquiring Joakim Soria from Texas, but that may only be the beginning of a significant overhaul in the way Detroit approaches the late innings. Manager Brad Ausmus stuck with his usual routine in Thursday night's win over the Los Angeles Angels, using Joba Chamberlain in the eighth and Joe Nathan in the ninth. But with Soria in the fold, Ausmus now has more options.
