Zach Miner up, Hannahan down

So I was a little right about the Tigers looking to the minors for arm help. I just didn’t quite nail the execution of it. Zach Miner’s contract was purchased from Toledo and Jack Hannahan was optioned to the Mud Hens.

Miner has pitched very well for the Hens with a 2.82 ERA in 9 starts. He’s thrown 51 innings and fanned 40 while walking 21.

Leyland must be confident that he can shorten the bench, at least for the time being. Marcus Thames recent play has certainly made him worthy of being the everyday DH.

    Any word on whether Miner replaces Colon in the rotation?

    Obviously, there’s a 60% chance he’ll pitch in that series. I already have tickets to two of those games. I think it’s time to pick up a third.

    I’d bet big money on it.

    Looks like the 27th. His first start will be the 22nd against Minnesota.
