Ryan Perry Set To Rehab At Triple-A Toledo

Detroit Tigers reliever Ryan Perry is eligible to come off the disabled list on April 20, and he appears to be on schedule to return to the team on that date. While the Tigers begin their west coast road trip, however, Perry will make a couple of rehab appearances with Triple-A Toledo.

The eye infection that put Perry on the DL appears to have cleared up, and if his visit to the eye doctor on Thursday checks out fine, he’ll be ready to go. Pending approval to wear hard contact lenses again, Perry is scheduled to throw a side session in Toledo on Thursday. He’s then set to pitch his first rehab appearance with the Mud Hens on Friday.

Perry will throw 30 pitches or two innings, whichever happens first. From there, he’s scheduled to throw one more side session over the weekend before one more rehab appearance. That will probably come on Monday, keeping Perry on schedule. If all goes well, he’ll then join the Tigers in Seattle on Wednesday.

That might seem strange, with the Tigers traveling the next day before returning to Comerica Park next Friday. But with a day game after a night game (along with pitchers such as Joel Zumaya continuing to be unavailable), the Tigers will probably need all the bullpen help they can get.
