Schlereth’s option voided, now on Tigers DL
Remember when the Tigers optioned Daniel Schlereth to Triple-A Toledo a couple weeks ago, and he reported shoulder problems the next day and eventually ended up on the Mud Hens disabled list? That move has now been voided, since it was determined that Schlereth’s injury dated back before the move.
Thus, the Tigers placed Schlereth on their 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 21, with left shoulder tendinitis. The move was backdated so long that Schlereth is actually eligible to come off the DL, though there’s no sign he’s close to returning. One would assume the Tigers will use up their option and send him to Toledo once he’s healthy again. The only difference now is that he’ll accumulate Major League service time while he’s on the DL.
