    Tigers deal three pitchers to Yankees for Sheffield

    The Detroit Tigers have acquired Gary Sheffield from the New York Yankees for three righthanded pitching prospects, the Tigers announced Friday.

    In return for Sheffield, the Tigers sent Humberto Sanchez, Kevin Whelan and Anthony Claggett to New York. Detroit agreed to a two-year contract extension with Sheffield through the 2009 season.

    The moves comes a aday after Sheffield angrily blasted Yankees management and said Bobby Abreu, the player who took his place in New York's lineup, isn't a good a player as he is.

    This is what I found so far


    Sanchez, who went a combined 10-6 with a 2.63 ERA over 20 starts in Double-A and Triple-A, will join the Yankees' 40-man roster. Whelan, who had 27 saves, will report to Double-A Trenton while Claggett will report to Class-A Tampa.
