Al Alburquerque Activated From DL

Tigers relief pitcher Al Alburquerque, who suffered a concussion when he was hit in the side of the head with a line drive during batting practice on August 12, will be in the Tigers’ bullpen tonight when the team looks to sweep the White Sox on national television:

Alburquerque only needed one game in Triple-A Toledo for his rehab assignment before getting activated from the DL. Alburquerque pitched last night for the Mud Hens, throwing 2/3 of an inning, allowing two hits, a run, and striking out two in Colorado.

Alburquerque has been a huge perk to the Tigers’ bullpen this year, so his return is obviously very welcome. He touted a 5-1 record, 57 strikeouts and a 2.19 ERA in 37 innings before being hit in the side of the head and hitting the DL.
