Tigers add Joakim Soria, bolstering shaky bullpen

DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Tigers had seen enough from their shaky bullpen to know something had to be done.

The AL Central-leading Tigers acquired right-hander Joakim Soria, giving them an option to pitch in the seventh, eighth or ninth inning as soon as Thursday night on the road against the Los Angeles Angels. Detroit dealt pitching prospects Corey Knebel and Jake Thompson to the Texas Rangers to get Soria on Wednesday night.

"We gave up a lot, guys that we valued," Dombrowski said Thursday. "But it was a necessity."
