Tigers recalled LHP Kyle Ryan from Triple-A Toledo.
Ryan tossed six shutout innings in his first major league start last weekend, but he'll be used as a long reliever for now. It's possible he'll get another shot if Kyle Lobstein struggles.
Tigers recalled LHP Robbie Ray from Triple-A Toledo.
Ray holds a 7.09 ERA and 1.80 WHIP at the major league level this season. He'll be used in a relief role.
Tigers recalled LHP Kyle Lobstein from Triple-A Toledo.
Lobstein is rejoining the rotation on Tuesday versus the Indians and will remain in it if he pitches well. He was effective in his first major league start last week, allowing two runs -- one earned -- on four hits and no walks over six innings.
Justin Verlander admitted Tuesday that his right shoulder is "kind of fatigued."
Verlander, of course, missed a starter last month with a shoulder issue. He pitched well his last time out, though, and isn't going to be shut down anytime soon unless the shoulder gets worse. "Baseball is my life, and I'm more at home here than anywhere else in the world," he said. "I'm always able to focus on that, especially when I'm on the mound, doing what I've done my whole life."
