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.


Congrats Mr. Worth. I do not mind if you are a .260 hitter that can flash some leather and move the runner over and also slide feet first to take out the 2nd baseman.

What for they called Omir ?

BTW: but for Carrera , they have their MLB´s roster again

Looks like JL is going for the jugular by playing Avila. Let’s just hope it’s not Alex’s jugular, if you remember that shot to the neck he took. Betemit is hitless in 7 ABs against Carmona, while Kelly is batless against him, according to the Tigers site. Takes too long to look this stuff up on Baseball-reference.com. In any case, not enough of a sample to base a decision on.
I don’t remember about Carrera and Marson, but the first 7 hitters are lefthanded. Rick has his work cut out. Re Carmona, I expect our usual approach; that is, patience in the early innings followed by early swings. Our damage would be in the early innings if at all if the norm holds true. Let’s see if something different happens tonight.

Leyland says Santos will get a start this weekend against the Twins.

Welcome back, Danny!
