Windsor Star - - SPORTS -

The Detroit Tigers ac­quired right-handed pitcher Elvin Ro­driguez from the Los An­ge­les An­gels Friday to com­plete the trade for out­fielder Justin Up­ton. The 19-year-old Ro­driguez ranked as the 22nd-best prospect in the An­gels’ or­ga­ni­za­tion ac­cord­ing to MLB Pipe­line. A na­tive of the Do­mini­can Repub­lic, the six­foot-three, 160-pound Ro­driguez signed with the An­gels as an in­ter­na­tional free agent in 2014. Ro­driguez split his time this past sea­son be­tween rookie-level Orem and sin­gle-A Burling­ton. He com­bined for a 5-3 record with a 2.91 earned-run av­er­age. He struck out 61 batters in 68 in­nings and op­po­nents had a .251 bat­ting av­er­age against him.
