Ryan Perry rejoining the team?

UPDATE Again: Now it’s official. Bondo to the DL for continued rehabilitation.

UPDATE: While there still hasn’t been an official announcement from the team, it does appear that Jeremy Bonderman is hitting the DL. I’ll update with more as I know it.

The Free Press is reporting that Ryan Perry is not with Mud Hens and is believed to be on his way to Pittsburgh to rejoin the team. Perry was optioned down to make room for Jeremy Bonderman. Perry has to stay on assignment for 10 days unless he is recalled to take someone’s place due to injury. So if he’s coming back it means someone is going on the DL and it is likely Bonderman.

If Bonderman does hit the DL it will be interesting to see how the Tigers handle his rehab. Once he starts pitching for a minor league club he is limited to 30 days. Will they start him right away hoping he gets the velocity back in a month or do they wait a while?

    I think we all knew Perry would be back real soon. It just happen to be very soon.

    I’m still gonna hold out hope that Willis is going DL and Miner finally gets another start.

      I think everyone really wants to see Willis bat on Sunday. If he can still hit and throw 5 innings, his trade value would go up quite a bit. So far he’s had 1 great start, 2 decent starts, and 3 bad starts. There are more than a few clubs in the NL that need pitching and he’s still a fan favorite. SF is probably the logical place he ends up. We might have to take back Renteria to seal the deal though. lol. just kidding. 🙂

      I really don’t see us trading him because we need pitching too. Who knows. Anything with Dontrelle is a mystery.

    That was settled quickly. Smart move and now we can at least move on. I’m glad they didn’t make any rash decisions.

    So Bonderman really was hurting. That sucks. I thought they somehow DL’d him for performance reasons.

    “Bonderman is shut down from throwing until the Tigers medical staff can get the pain out of his shoulder. It was enough of a concern that the Tigers sent him to visit noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Fla., for an exam Friday morning.

    The results of that visit, including an MRI and arthrogram, showed nothing more than “normal wear and tear,” according to Tigers head athletic trainer Kevin Rand. Yet his lingering soreness means Bonderman is far from on his way back. ”
