Perry headed to Toledo for rehab
Ryan Perry got the go-ahead from the Tigers to start his rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo after throwing a second successful mound session Thursday. If all goes well, it could be a rather quick assignment.
Perry headed out after Thursday’s game to join the Tigers in Indianapolis. He’s scheduled to pitch one inning there Saturday night, then two innings Monday night, after which the Tigers will evaluate where he’s at. That doesn’t mean he’s coming up right after that, but it leaves open the possibility.
There’s no bigger-picture project for Perry on assignment, manager Jim Leyland said. He’s just there to build up his arm again and face hitters, not to adjust anything to make any tweaks. That, too, would suggest this should be a short assignment.
