Todd Jones back to DL

He apparently had a recurrence of his right shoulder soreness after that long outing Friday night and was placed back on the disabled list this morning, retroactive to Saturday. Gary Glover’s contract has been purchased. Look for more on the site later this morning.

UPDATE @ 11:40am: Jones said he basically pushed himself too fast. He knew it, but he felt like he could help the team. Once he got out on the mound, the pain in the back in the shoulder flared up whenever he got out of his mechanics. The plan is for the Tigers to activate him when rosters expand Sept. 1.
