Tigers, Rangers work out trade for Prince Fielder, Ian Kinsler

Thu., Nov. 21, 2013

First baseman Prince Fielder as traded to the Texas Rangers in a blockbuster deal Wednesday night that sent second baseman Ian Kinsler to the Detroit Tigers. Detroit gave the Rangers $30 million as part of the trade, according to a person with knowledge of the deal. Fielder had to consent to the trade before it could be completed. The big first baseman signed a $214 million, nine-year contract with the Tigers before the 2012 season that includes a limited no-trade provision. Kinsler, a former Spokane Indian, just finished the first season of a $75 million, five-year contract. It’s the first headline-grabbing move of baseball’s offseason and involves two of the American League’s top teams. – Associated Press
