Tigers acquire Capellan from Brewers

sounds pretty cheap too ;-D


DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Tigers bolstered their bullpen Sunday, acquiring right-hander Jose Capellan from the Milwaukee Brewers for minor league pitcher Chris Cody.

Capellan appeared in seven games this season for the Brewers, going 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA after being recalled from Triple-A Nashville on June 1.

"Capellan has a good arm and major league experience and we feel he will help us in our bullpen," Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said.

Cody was 5-5 with a 1.77 ERA in 14 starts with Single-A West Michigan this season, before allowing two runs in a loss during his only start with Single-A Lakeland. The left-hander is expected to be assigned to Single-A Brevard County.

I think this is a good move by DD. Capellan is a hard throwing reliever who came cheap and can be plugged in to the bull pen right away. This will enable DD to see if Capellan can plug the leaks or if he has to try and bring in a bigger name pitcher. Wise move.
