MIAMI -

The Miami Marlins have agreed to send pitcher Anibal Sanchez and infielder Omar Infante to the Detroit Tigers.

In exchange, the Marlins will receive highly touted pitching prospect Jacob Turner, catcher Rob Brantly, and pitcher Brian Flynn. The teams are also swapping their competitive balance draft picks.

The teams have made big trades before, including when the Marlins sent Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Cabrera to the Tigers for several prospects.
