The Detroit Tigers didn't wait long to make a splash.

One day after the World Series concluded, the Tigers acquired Cincinnati Reds catcher Tucker Barnhart in a trade, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. In exchange, the Tigers sent infield prospect Nick Quintana to the Reds.

Barnhart, 30, has played all eight of his MLB seasons with the Reds. He is best known for his defense as a two-time Gold Glove winner, but the left-hander also hit .247 with seven home runs and 48 RBIs in 116 games this past season.
