Relief pitcher Ryan Perry has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Tigers because of bicipital tendonitis in his throwing shoulder. Replacing Perry on the roster is Enrique Gonzalez.
The club purchased the contract of Enrique Gonzalez from Toledo. Gonzalez was a starter for the Tigers’ Triple A team and posted at 3.46 ERA this season, with a 4-5 record. Leyland said he will be used in relief.
Perry had been struggling mightily lately, and Jim Leyland said the pitching issues are "usually a red flag" that something is up. In Perry's case, an injury is what's up. Hopefully he will get healthy and return a much better pitcher than he has been the last few weeks.
