The Detroit Tigers have traded reserve catcher Bryan Holaday to the Texas Rangers for reserve catcher Bobby Wilson and minor league prospect Myles Jaye. Here's the take on Jaye, the only prospect involved in the deal.

Myles Jaye, RHP: Jaye was originally drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 17th round in 2010 from high school in Fayetteville, Georgia. He was traded to the White Sox in the 2012 Jason Frasor deal, then to the Rangers in December, 2015 for Will Lamb.

Jaye is a 6-3, 170 pound right-hander, age 24. He pitched 2015 with Double-A Birmingham in the Southern League, posting a 3.29 ERA with a 104/47 K/BB in 148 innings with 135 hits allowed. He doesn't throw especially hard, his fastball generally around 90, but he gets sink on the pitch and generates grounders. He also has a curve, slider, and change-up. None of his pitches are plus and he relies a lot on his off-speed stuff, but he's been a durable inning eater over the last three seasons. In the majors he projects as a fifth starter or long relief type.
