Mike Maroth trade from the Detroit Tigers to the Cardinals

It has been confirmed that the Detroit Tigers traded Mike Maroth to the St. Louis Cardinals.

Mike Maroth trade from the Detroit Tigers to the Cardinals The Tigers will receive an unknown player for Mike Maroth. This is what Walt Jocketty, Cardinals' GM, had to say about the Mike Maroth trade: "Mike is a young pitcher who we feel is only going to get stronger as he continues his recovery from last season's surgery. He is an established starter who is going to provide us with innings and help take pressure off of our bullpen. We think the change in leagues will also benefit Mike."

The tigers have plenty of starters this year, and Kenny Rogers is scheduled to return on Friday, after an injury recovery. The Cardinals will most likely debut Maroth next week in New York, as the team has been struggling with its current starters. Earlier this week, the Cardinals signed Tomo Ohka to a minor league contract.

Maroth, Durbin, Robertson and others have been competing for the starter spots and the trade will guarantee more play-time to the former Tiger. Maroth went 5-2 last year while missing more than half the season after surgery to remove bone chips in his left elbow.

The Detroit Tigers are playing the Atlanta Braves on Friday. The odds on that game, according to the online sportsbook Bodog Sports (new window) are:

Detroit Tigers +128
Atlanta Braves -138

St. Louis Cardinals will play Philadelphia Phillies. Betting odds on that game:

Philadelphia Phillies -110
St. Louis Cardinals EVEN
