Tigers trade Robertson to Marlins

JUPITER, Fla. — The Florida Marlins have acquired left-hander Nate Robertson from the Detroit Tigers for left-hander Jay Voss.

Robertson started six games and also spent time in the bullpen for the Tigers last season. He finished 2-3 with a 5.44 ERA in 28 appearances.

Owed $10 million this year in the final season of a $21.25 million, three-year deal, he has a 51-69 record and 4.92 ERA in 202 games over eight big league seasons. Detroit is sending Florida cash as part of the deal.

The 22-year-old Voss split last season between Class-A Jupiter and Double-A Jacksonville for the Marlins. In 10 games with Jupiter, he compiled a 2.03 ERA and 10 strikeouts. He was 3-0 with a 2.97 ERA and 36 strikeouts in 30 appearances with Jacksonville.
