DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Tigers have recalled left-hander Daniel Schlereth from Toledo to pitch in Friday night's home series opener against Seattle.
He had a 1-2 record with a 2.83 ERA in 28 games for the Triple-A Mud Hens.
Schlereth, the 26th pick two years ago, made his major league debut last season and was 1-4 with a 5.89 ERA in 21 relief appearances. He is the son of former NFL offensive lineman Mark Schlereth.
Detroit acquired Schlereth from Arizona in December as part of the three-team trade that sent Curtis Granderson to the New York Yankees and Edwin Jackson to the Diamondbacks. The Tigers also added Austin Jackson, Max Scherzer and Phil Coke in the deal.
