This deal will also cost the Tigers their third pick in the upcoming draft, with the first (ninth overall) being a protected pick and the second being lost with the signing of Jordan Zimmerman.
This also makes the expected Tigers starting lineup entirely right-handed, except for the switch-hitting Martin.
