Ryan Perry appears to be on the verge of a Minor League rehab assignment after throwing a side session Tuesday afternoon with the Tigers at Citi Field.
"We'll see where he stands and decide whether to send him out," manager Jim Leyland said Tuesday. "He had no pain the other day, throwing with full extension, so I assume he'll be going out shortly."
With some relievers currently on the Tigers' roster struggling (I'm mainly looking at you, Fu-Te Ni), it's important that Perry gets healthy and gets his game back to where it once was. He struggled mightily before going on the DL, and although I'm sure the injury didn't help his situation, it really just seemed like he was off his game. Hopefully some time off and a rehab assignment will help fix whatever was wrong.
