Wilk, 26, had a 4.72 ERA across 24 starts and four relief appearances this past season with the Pirates' Triple-A affiliate. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2012 as a member of the Tigers and figures to function as minor league depth next season.

Tigers optioned LHP Adam Wilk to Triple-A Toledo.

He got the boot just minutes after being pummeled for six runs on eight hits and two walks over only two innings against the light-hitting Mariners.

Adam Wilk was knocked around by the Mariners Wednesday, allowing six runs on eight hits and two walks over just two innings.

Adam Wilk had a rough night against the Rangers on Thursday allowing three runs on ten hits in just four innings of work.

He struck out two and walked one in the game. This was Wilk's second start filling in for the injured Doug Fister, but with efforts like this he may not be long for the rotation. He'll attempt to improve on this effort when he takes on the Mariners next week.

Adam Wilk left Saturday's game after being hit by a foul ball while sitting in the Tigers' dugout between innings.
