Tigers Send Brayan Villarreal Back To Toledo

Following Saturday's loss to the San Francisco Giants, the Detroit Tigers sent relief pitcher Brayan Villarreal back to Triple-A Toledo. They also recalled Adam Wilk, who will rejoin the team after being sent down just a couple weeks ago.

Villarreal was just brought back up to the Tigers last week when Daniel Schlereth was demoted to the Mud Hens. Schlereth had been struggling, so he was sent down to Triple-A Toledo, giving Villarreal another shot at making it with the Tigers.

Villarreal's stint in Detroit lasted all of two games and all of two-thirds of an inning. He appeared against the Giants on Friday and walked a runner with the bases loaded for the eventual game-winning run. He appeared a day later in the Tigers' 15-3 loss to San Francisco and gave up a grand slam in his one-third of an inning. He also had two walks in that appearance.

Wilk is back with the Tigers after being sent down when Ryan Perry returned. Wilk last appeared for the Tigers on June 17 against the Rockies, pitching four innings and giving up four runs.
