I’m not sure who’s spot he is getting on the roster. My guess is that either Dmitri Young or Placido Polanco are being sent to the disabled list. This may be one of the moves for tomorrow’s doubleheader.
Also, there are reports that the Tigers have acquired infielder John Mcdonald from the Blue Jays. Mcdonald combines a good glove with a .590 career OPS to be a very uninspiring pick-up.
UPDATE: All of the above is true, and here are the accompanying roster moves: Doug Creek has been designated for assignment, Placido Polanco has been placed on the 15 day DL retroactive to July 12th, and Troy Percival has been moved to the 60 day DL.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that Toronto will receive a player to be named later in exchange for McDonald.
