Tigers to call up Dolsi
Freddy Dolsi will get another shot at the big leagues beginning Tuesday, when the Tigers recall the right-hander from Triple-A Toledo. The team announced the move Monday as the follow-up to Sunday’s postgame move that optioned Ryan Perry to the Mud Hens.
The 26-year-old Dolsi is 2-2 with a 4.35 ERA and four saves in 24 appearances with the Hens this year, but has seemingly found his game in June after opponents batted .409 against him in May. Since the start of this month, he has allowed two runs on eight hits over 10 2/3 innings and converted three saves.
Dolsi made 42 appearances for the Tigers last year with a 1-5 record and two saves to go with a 3.97 ERA over 47 2/3 innings. He made an early impression with the club after arriving in May, but fell into command struggles, evidenced by his 28 walks.
UPDATE: Also on Saturday, the Tigers outrighted the contract of catcher Dane Sardinha to Toledo. Detroit designated Sardinha for assignment after Friday’s game, replacing him at backup catcher with prospect Dusty Ryan.
