Tigers Activate Andy Dirks From DL, Designate Don Kelly For Assignment

On Friday, the Detroit Tigers announced via the official Twitter account of Media Relations Director Brian Britten that the club has activated outfielder Andy Dirks from the disabled list and in the process was forced to designate outfielder Don Kelly for assignment.

Dirks had been inactive since May 31 and has been healing from an Achilles injury in his right foot.

With Dirks' return, moving Kelly became a necessity because of the amount of left-handed hitting outfielders on the roster. It merely became a numbers game.
