SAN DIEGO (AP) - The Detroit Tigers have obtained pitcher Alfredo Simon from the Cincinnati Reds for a pair of young players.

Cincinnati got right-hander Johnathon Crawford and infielder Eugenio Suarez as part of the deal, announced Thursday on the last day of baseball's winter meetings.

Simon, a 33-year-old right-hander, was 15-10 with a 3.44 ERA last season.

Crawford, 23, was a first-round draft pick in 2013 and went 8-3 with a 2.85 ERA this year at Class A West Michigan.

The 22-year-old Suarez hit .242 with four homers and 23 RBIs for Detroit last season.

(A previous version of this story had an incorrect RBI total for Eugenio Suarez. Suarez had 23 RBIs for Detroit last season.)
