Chris Shelton recalled

The Tigers continue to expand their roster and today brought back Chris Shelton. With a southpaw starting tonight for the Angels, it wouldn’t surprise me to see Shelton in the starting lineup.

During his month with Toledo he hit 266/372/440 and he struck out 37 times in 109 at-bats. I don’t think his swing is all the way back as evidenced by his K’s and the lack of power. However he did walk 18 times so it would seem to indicate that at least his pitch recognition is on it’s way back.

    Just read this article on the callup. I hadn’t expected them to call him up to catch:

    That was a pretty stupid move in Saturday night game to take out Inge. The difference was a loss
