Diamondbacks aquire Armando Galarraga from Tigers

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Tigers have traded right-handed pitcher Armando Galarraga to the Arizona Diamondbacks for right-hander Kevin Eichhorn and left-hander Ryan Robowski.

The trade was announced Monday.

Galarraga gained fame last season when umpire Jim Joyce acknowledged blowing a call with two outs in the ninth inning that cost him a perfect game.

He was 4-9 with a 4.49 ERA in 24 starts and one relief appearance last season in Detroit. He's 23-26 with a 4.58 ERA over four seasons with the Tigers and Texas Rangers.

Galarraga has a one-year contract for $2.3 million. He became expendable when the Tigers signed Brad Penny.

Eichhorn was 5-6 record in 15 minor league starts last season.

Robowski was 2-4 record in 35 relief games in the minors last year.
