DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Tigers have welcomed back third baseman Brandon Inge.
Detroit recalled Inge on Thursday from his injury rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Toledo. Inge was on the disabled list with mononucleosis.
The Tigers have sent left-handed pitcher Adam Wilk to Toledo and plan to recall right-hander Ryan Perry from the Mud Hens before Friday night’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Detroit — trailing Cleveland by a game in the AL Central — will face the Diamondbacks, New York Mets and San Francisco Giants during a 10-game homestand after a day off on Thursday.
Inge is hitting .211 with one homer and 12 RBIs in 52 games.
Perry has a 12.19 ERA, giving up 14 runs, 17 hits and nine walks over 10 1-3 innings.
