The Detroit Tigers have traded right-handed pitcher Armando Galarraga to the Arizona Diamondbacks for right-hander Kevin Eichhorn and left-hander Ryan Robowski.
The trade was announced Monday.
Galarraga gained fame last season when umpire Jim Joyce acknowledged blowing a call with two outs in the ninth inning that cost him a perfect game.
He was 4-9 with a 4.49 ERA in 24 starts and one relief appearance last season in Detroit. He's 23-26 with a 4.58 ERA over four seasons with the Tigers and Texas Rangers.
Galarraga, who has a one-year contract for $2.3 million, became expendable when the Tigers signed Brad Penny.
Eichhorn was 5-6 record in 15 minor league starts last season. Robowski was 2-4 record in 35 relief games in the minors last year.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
