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.

The only reply to this is, “I’m not surprised”.

Well there is one other reply…..

“He’s Done!”

What’s this chatter about Raul Ibanez? If the Mariners put him on waivers for the purpoe of getting him to Tampa, did the Tigers claim him? Then the Mariners must have withdrawn him from waivers? I missed all this.

Just getting ready to head down to the game. Hopefully Miner will continue on the same path.

Now regarding Glover, WHY HIM????? He is a career 5.00 era pitcher. He really isn’t that good. There are guys down there in Toledo, that are doing way better than him Cruceta, Fien, Rapada and Ostlund. Not real sure why some of these guys are getting chances. Especially Rapada today, with all the lefties in their lineup. Craziness I tell you.

I would be surprised if he’s actually injured. I think this is the organization’s kind way of removing him from the roster. I’ll be shocked if he pitches again this season, at least in a Tiger uniform.

I don’t get the Glover deal either. I though Oslund had really deserved the call up and Cructa has also been tough down there.

Missed the last couple of games and I must say it was liberating to not have to be a masochist for 2 days.

It would be nice to see Zach throw a good one today but he can’t be good every time, can he?

The bats have to start taking advantage of the mediocre LHP we have been seeing lately.

Good luck to Polly on the new batting grip but I’m not sold on changing something that has worked so well for him. He is still getting some hits and there has been some power but a lot of fly balls to left center and grounders to short & 3rd. I was personally pulling for him to get red hot and win the batting title. That would be cool.

Hessman doesn’t seem to be playing much for the Olympic squad and the guy they have playing 3rd has been hitless his last 2 games. The only game Mike played (against Korea) he had a couple of hits and a homer.. Wonder if he is injured?

Blaine Neal hasn’t played yet.

USA beat my team the other day in a come from behinder. Drats!

Yes, USA manager Johnson reported on 8/15/08 that “Mike Hessman has a sore heel”
