The Tigers' official twitter feed announced that the Tigers have placed Joel Zumaya on the 15-day DL. Casey Fien was called up to replace him on the roster. I imagine after the MRI results from today are in, the DL stint will be increased, but this is the move for now. To give you a feel for how serious Zumaya’s injury might be, Gerald Laird was ‘consoling’ Zoom after the game by telling him he’d be throwing again in eight months.
Bless You Boys says Fien deserves the call, as he’s been the Mud Hens' set-up man/closer and has a 2.29 ERA in 39 innings this year.
