Kyle Ryan called up, Ian Krol optioned

Ian Krol’s four-run, four-hit eighth inning Sunday led to a change in the Tigers bullpen. Kyle Ryan has been recalled from Triple-A Toledo, presumably to fill a relief sport, and Krol has been optioned back to the Mud Hens.

It’s the third time Krol has been optioned out this season after making the Opening Day roster. He seemingly had found his footing in July, but had struggled lately to finish off hitters, from a July 31 outing at Baltimore to yesterday. Tom Gorzelanny’s return Sunday wasn’t a good sign for Krol’s role.

Ryan made two starts since rejoining Toledo, most recently eight shutout innings on three hits with two walks and eight strikeouts last Thursday. He, too, has been bouncing back and forth this season, now up for the third time.


Lineup at KC: Gose 8, Collins 7, Kinsler 4, V. Martinez DH, J. Martinez 9, Castellanos 5, Marte 3, Avila 2, Romine 6. Boyd starts.
McCann and Iglesias benched

RHB hit against Cueto better. Of course, Ausmus does not know that

Actually, he was aware. He said the three-year difference is smaller. Also, he said he tends to go more off wOBA than AVG, which the first I’d heard him acknowledging that. That said, the wOBA difference this year is about the same as the AVG difference.

Did he mean the wOBA of the batter? The wOBA against Cueto by RH is higher as you say
