Postgame roster move

The Tigers made the Zach Miner roster move after the game. Jeff Larish was optioned to Triple-A Toledo to make room for Miner.

I’m not on the series at Kansas City, so probably no game blogs. I’ll try to chime in with an update or two over the next few days before I’m back on for the White Sox series next weekend.

Larish at third

To quote manager Jim Leyland today, “Larish is at third. And that’s the end of that conversation.”

Larish played in three games at third at Triple-A Toledo after the Tigers sent him down last month. He’s playing tonight in place of Carlos Guillen, whose wife remains hospitalized in Detroit. However, this also might be Leyland’s one chance to get Larish a start before the Tigers have to make room on the roster for Zach Miner on Monday — likely at Larish’s expense.

Sheff to DL, Larish called up

The Tigers placed Gary Sheffield on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain. Jeff Larish will have his contract purchased from Triple-A Toledo and be out here in time for Wednesday’s strain game (sorry, all these injury stories are getting to me). Carlos Guillen is DH-ing today. According to the manager, he has a case of hemorrhoids (no, I’m not kidding) that has been limiting his mobility for the last several days.
