Bonine to start Game 2 Friday

The Tigers will call up Eddie Bonine from Triple-A Toledo to make the spot start in the second game of Friday’s day-night doubleheader against the White Sox. He was the one candidate who stood out among the Tigers’ options at Triple-A Toledo and Double-A Erie, and he was on schedule to start for the Mud Hens on Friday. Most likely, the roster move will come between games Friday.

In case you missed it, here’s the story from Monday on how Bonine has gotten back to pitching after his mom lost her battle with breast cancer last month.


Red Sox get LaRoche. I’m not even sure the Tigers could have used another first baseman, maybe a LH bat, but why does it always seem the stronger teams get the help?

That’s a nice article about Eddie and his mom, Jason, very well done. Good picture, too. I lost my dad at about Eddie’s age so I know how that is. I think he’s going to have some extra help on Friday when he goes after those Sox.
