On This Date in 1970…

…the Tigers acquired outfielder Russ Nagelson and lefty Bill Rohr from the Indians for RHP Fred Lasher.

Nagelson appeared in 28 games for the Tigers that year, his last in the bigs, and batted .188.

Rohr never appeared in a game for Detroit.

After his trade to Cleveland, Lasher went 1-7 with a 4.07 ERA in 43 appearances.

Not exactly a blockbuster.
