Tigers bring up Omir Santos for stretch run
The last the Tigers called up Omir Santos, he flew from Detroit to Tampa, started against the Rays, and was back the next day. This time, he’ll get to stick around a while after making the trip east on the Ohio Turnpike from Toledo. He’ll serve as the backup catcher to Alex Avila the rest of the way out.
No word yet if there’s another call-up coming. Since Danny Worth was up a week ago while Don Kelly was on paternity leave, he isn’t eligible to be recalled until the Mud Hens season ends later today.
