A person familiar with the trade says Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price has been traded to the Detroit Tigers.
The person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal was not yet announced did not say whom the left-hander was dealt for, but Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson was pulled mid-inning Thursday moments ahead of the non-waiver Trade deadline.
The trade joins Price with Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander, the past three AL Cy Young Award winners in the AL Central-leading Tigers rotation.
The deal comes just hours after the Oakland A's got Jon Lester from the Boston Red Sox.
