rotoworldTigers acquired RHP Jose Veras from the Astros for OF Danry Vasquez and a player to be named later.
Veras, 32, had a cool 2.93 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 44/14 K/BB ratio in 43 innings this year with Houston and could get a shot at saves in Detroit if Joaquin Benoit has some hiccups. Veras is earning $1.85 million this season and carries a $3.25 million team option for 2014. Vasquez, a 19-year-old from Venezuela, was batting .281/.333/.390 with five home runs and nine steals through 96 games this year for Low-A West Michigan.
Figured it was talked about in the trade deadline thread but posted it anyway because big moves/trades deserve their own thread.
