Connecticut Tigers

A 4-3 week for Connecticut brought their season record to 16-17. The Tigers sit in the basement of the New York-Penn League Stedler Division.

Perez Promoted

Following a terrific start to his season with Tigers West in the GCL, Detroit promoted shortstop Wenceel Perez to Connecticut this week. Perez sported a .383/.462/.543 slash line at the time of his promotion, but has struggled out of the gates with the Tigers.

Perez started 0-for-7, and is just 3-for-17 (.176) through three games in the New York-Penn League. He did, however, pick up a pair of hits in his most recent appearance on Wednesday. Hopefully it’s a sign his bat is about to reawaken.

GCL Tigers

Tigers West won four of their five games this week to raise their record to 17-8. They lead the Gulf Coast League Northwest Division. Tigers East lost four of their five games this week. Their 11-14 record puts them in second place in the GCL Northeast.

Pair Begins Rehab

Ryan Carpenter and Spencer Turnbull both made rehab appearances for Tigers West this week. Carpenter turned in a great start last Friday, allowing one hit and one walk in three scoreless frames. The lefty also added four strikeouts.

On Wednesday, Carpenter continued his rehab with Lakeland. Again working three innings, he yielded two runs (one earned) on four hits, walked one, and struck out one. Carpenter landed on the disabled list on June 1 with a strained oblique, and had been splitting his season between Detroit and Toledo.

Turnbull returned to action on Monday, lasting two and two-thirds scoreless innings for Tigers West. The former second rounder gave up one hit, walked three, and fanned three. Turnbull made 13 starts for Erie before landing on the DL about a month ago. He owns a 4.24 ERA and has struck out 10.5 batters per nine for the SeaWolves this season.
