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. It's not clear who will take his spot in the rotation, as Doug Fister is unlikely to be ready. Duane Below is an option to be pulled out of the bullpen.

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.

Collin Balester had to warm up in a hurry and enter the game. The ball hit Wilk on his shoulder, but he was diagnosed with a contusion and should be fine to make his next start. He allowed two runs over five innings before exiting.

Wilk will make the start Saturday against the White Sox. The 24-year-old southpaw had a 3.24 ERA and 76/14 K/BB ratio over 102 innings at the Triple-A level last year, but isn't a recommended option in fantasy leagues.

Adam Wilk will be recalled from Triple-A Toledo to start Saturday against the White Sox.

He'll take the place of Doug Fister (costochondral strain) in the rotation while Duane Below will remain in the bullpen. Wilk, 24, posted a 3.24 ERA and 76/14 K/BB ratio over 102 innings at the Triple-A level last season, but doesn't profile as more than a back-end starter in the long-term.

Chris Iott of M-Live.com considers Adam Wilk a darkhorse for the Tigers' fifth rotation spot this season.

The Tigers are looking for a replacement for Brad Penny and manager Leyland prefers pitchers who can throw strikes. Wilk posted a 3.24 ERA and 76/14 K/BB ratio over 102 innings at Triple-A Toledo last season. Other candidates for the job include Jacob Turner, Duane Below, Drew Smyly, and Andy Oliver.
