Tigers recalled RHP Alex Wilson from Triple-A Toledo.
Wilson was one of the last cuts from Tigers camp this spring. The 28-year-old right-hander posted an impressive 1.91 ERA and 0.88 WHIP in 28 1/3 innings of relief last season for the Red Sox and should be an asset in long relief for Detroit. Apr 23 - 9:32 AM

Tigers optioned RHP Alex Wilson to Triple-A Toledo.

Wilson, who pitched for the Red Sox in 2013 and 2014, was tagged for 10 runs over just 6 2/3 innings this spring. That wasn't good enough to crack Detroit's bullpen, but he's useful relief depth to have around.
Mar 24 - 3:25 PM

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus admitted Friday that six of the team's seven bullpen spots are virtually locked up already.

The one remaining spot is for a second left-hander who has the ability to work multiple innings. That means Alex Wilson and Josh Zeid are on the outside looking in after the addition of Joba Chamberlain earlier in the week. Each will assuredly get their chance at some point during the season.

Tigers acquired RHP Alex Wilson, OF Yoenis Cespedes, and RHP Gabe Speier from the Red Sox for RHP Rick Porcello.

Wilson had a promising 1.91 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, and 19/5 K/BB ratio in 28 1/3 innings this past season out of the Boston bullpen. The Tigers needed all the bullpen help they could get, and the 28-year-old Wilson should be a nice addition to middle relief.
