Ryan Perry hits the disabled list

The Detroit Tigers placed struggling reliever Ryan Perry on the disabled list and purchased the contract of Enrique Gonzalez from the Mud Hens. The diagnosis for Perry is bicep tendonitis.

The injury supposedly isn’t serious, but I get nervous about diagnoses like this. Zach Miner had elbow tendonitis which turned in Tommy John surgery. Bobby Seay’s early diagnosis was tendonitis before it becoming a rotator cuff issue. Fernando Rodney had bicep tendonitis which caused him to miss large swaths of 2007. Now sometimes nothing happens and everything is fine. But tendonitis diagnoses seem to beget more severe injuries.

As for his replacement, Gonzalez was signed as a minor league free agent and hung around fairly late into spring training. He’s been starting for the Mud Hens which means he can eat some innings (which could be helpful in the short term with Eddie Bonine being extended last night and unavailable for a few days).

If this had happened 3 weeks ago it likely would have been Jay Sborz or Robbie Weinhardt getting the call. Sborz though has struggled as of late and Weinhardt is working his way back from the DL.

  2. Yes, I need an explanation as well, it’s rare for me to not recognize a cartoon character at all.

  3. That’s Perry the platypus from Disney’s Phineas and Ferb. He’s a secret agent masquerading as a family pet. Awesome kids’ show.

  4. It’s Perry the Platypus, which I only figured out from viewing the name of the image file (perrytheplatypus.jpg).

  5. Agent P sighting! Thanks Billfer, made my day.

    Now Leyland can play the role of Phineas and say “Hey, where’d Perry go?”

    Now if you can work Doofenschmirtz Evil Incorporated……
