De La Cruz optioned to Toledo

The move makes room for Capellan on the roster. He’ll work out of the bullpen with the Hens, a sign that he could be back soon and that the club sees him likely as a reliever down the road.

Another relief trade

This time it’s Jose Capellan, whom the Tigers acquired from Milwaukee for Class A lefty Chris Cody. Capellan is expected to join the team today, at which point they’ll have to open a roster spot. Capellan is another former Braves reliever who now approaches the mid-90s with his fastball.
