The Tigers are beginning their salary trimming.

On Thursday night, they sent outfielder Cameron Maybin to the Angels.

The deal is a 'trade-and-sign,' according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal. Maybin is set to make $9 million, and's Jason Beck first reported the talks were happening.

In return, Detroit is acquiring Double-A right-handed pitcher Victor Alcantara from the Angels.

Maybin is owed a $9 million salary next season, which the Angels will presumably pick up.

In 94 games last season, Maybin batted .315 with four home runs and 43 RBI.
