Tigers summon Bonderman back to majors
The Detroit Tigers plan to recall right-hander Jeremy Bonderman from an injury rehab assignment Tuesday, the same day they promoted five other players from triple-A Toledo.
Bonderman missed half of last season after undergoing surgery to correct a blood clot in his right shoulder and lasted just four innings in his only start this summer, a June loss at Chicago against the White Sox. He was 0-3 with a 5.79 ERA in 13 relief appearances in Toledo.
Manager Jim Leyland said Monday the right-hander will pitch for the Central Division-leading Tigers, but added there's "no chance" he will start.
Detroit also will recall right-handers Eddie Bonine and Casey Fein, as well as catcher Dusty Ryan and outfielder Wilkin Ramirez from Toledo on Tuesday.
The club also will purchase the contract of shortstop Brent Dlugach from its Triple-A affiliate and place infielder Michael Hollimon (shoulder) on the 60-day disabled list.
