The Philadelphia Phillies have acquired All-Star left-handed reliever Gregory Soto in a trade with the Detroit Tigers, the teams announced Saturday. Here’s what you need to know:
Soto earned his second consecutive All-Star nod last season, recording 30 saves with a 3.28 ERA across 60 1/3 innings pitched.
The Tigers will receive Nick Maton, Matt Vierling and Donny Sands from Philadelphia in return.
Detroit infielder Kody Clemens — the son of Roger Clemens — will also be sent to the Phillies as part of the five-player deal.
