Following the game tonight Eddie Bonine was optioned to Erie and Dane Sardhina was
optioned to Toledo designated for assignment. Taking their places are Jeff Larish and Brandon Inge.
Inge of course is returning from the disabled list.
In the case of Bonine, he struggled his last 2 outings and his command was particularly good. With the All Star break coming up the Tigers won’t need a 5th starter for over a week so they are giving themselves an extra bat.
As for who will fill that 5th starter role, I’d guess it will be Zach Miner after the break. He was great in a 4 inning start for Toledo and will get at least one more start to further stretch his arm out prior to being needed.
