The Detroit Tigers announced the club has acquired third baseman Wilson Betemit from the Kansa City Royals in exchange for lefthander pitcher Antonio Cruz and catcher Julio Rodriguez.

Betemit, 29, batted .281 with 15 doubles, a triple, three homeruns and 27 RBI in 57 games with the Royals in 2011. He has primarily played third base for the Royals this season, seeing action in 47 games at the position.

A veteran of nine seasons at the major league level with the Atlanta Braves (2001, 2004-06 ), Los Angeles Dodgers (2006-07), New York Yankees (2007-08), Chicago White Sox (2009) and Royals (2010-11), Betemit has posted a .268 batting average (434x1622), 100 doubles, five triples, 58 home runs and 224 RBI in 657 games during his career.

The Tigers will announce a corresponding roster when Betemit reports to the club.
