Detroit Tigers Minor League Report: Austin Murr causes a stir
The Toledo Mud Hens sweep the St.Paul Saints, Parker Meadows, and the rest of the West Michigan Whitecaps outfield has a solid week in Lansing. Here are the rest of the stories from the Detroit Tigers minor league system.
We are hitting the last portion of the Detroit Tigers minor league schedule and the hottest team among the four affiliates are the Toledo Mud Hens, winners of seven straight games and sitting on top of the Triple-A East-Midwest Division with a two-game lead over St.Paul.
Before we break down each team, Detroit made a few moves over the weekend. Today before their make-up game with the Minnesota Twins. The Tigers sent down right-hander Jason Foley and brought up left-hander Miguel Del Pozo. On Saturday to make room for Matthew Boyd, Daz Cameron was sent back down.
Del Pozo has been solid for the Mud Hens the last month. In 10.2 innings of work, he has allowed two runs over nine hits, walked three, and struck out sixteen with an ERA of 1.69. He has a FIP of 1.23 and has K per 9 of 13.50.
From Mud Hens pitcher Spenser Watkins was sent back down from Baltimore to Norfolk today. The former Tigers farmhand was 2-7 with an ERA of 7.47 in ten starts for Baltimore.
When the rosters expand on Wednesday to 28, manager AJ Hinch told the media today two familiar names will be back with the roster. Niko Goodrum, who is set to return from his rehab assignment, and Wily Peralta, who is scheduled to start Wednesday’s home game against the Oakland A’s.
We will discuss our live look at Lansing from the doubleheader on Wednesday night as me and Chris Brown were there to witness the High-A debut of Colt Keith for the Whitecaps. Let’s recap the past few weeks of Toledo as continue their winning ways.
