And yet another Tiger player is headed to the disabled list. Fernando Rodney, who hasn’t pitched the last few games due to shoulder stiffness was placed on the DL retroactive to May 21st. Zach Miner will take his place.
While the Tigers have weathered the losses of Kenny Rogers and Joel Zumaya, you wonder just how many more injuries this team can handle. The offense has helped cover up the bullpen so far, but there’s probably a limit. The Tigers who had 2 set-up men last year (who many believed should have been closing) have lost both of them.
