Tigers call up Danny Worth
The last of the September call-ups has arrived, with Danny Worth now eligible to return from Triple-A Toledo. The Tigers recalled him on Tuesday, adding the versatile, sure-handed infielder for the playoff chase.
Worth’s numbers with the Tigers, including a .300 average (9-for-30), two doubles and three RBIs, look more productive than his season on the whole with the Mud Hens. However, he finished strong in Toledo, batting .415 (17-for-41) with nine RBIs to finish up with a .256 average on the year.
Also joining the Tigers from Toledo will be Hens manager Phil Nevin, who will serve as an extra coach, and athletic trainer Matt Rankin.
