The Toledo Mud Hens, the Tigers' Triple-A affiliate, placed pitcher Luke Putkonen on the disabled list, according to the Toledo Blade. Putkonen has been dealing with an elbow injury and there is no timetable for his return. Replacing Putkonen on the Mud Hens' roster will be right-handed pitcher Ryan Perry , who was promoted from the Double-A Erie SeaWolves.
The Tigers brought back a familiar face to their organization. Detroit signed pitcher Ryan Perry to a minor-league deal, according to mlive.com. Perry was a former first-round pick from the 2008 draft, though he didn't pan out as the Tigers initially thought. "Our scouts saw him throw side sessions, bullpens," Tigers assistant general manager Al Avila said. "They said he looked healthy and he was throwing hard." The last time Perry played in the majors was in 2012 with the Nationals. He posted a 10.13 ERA in seven appearances.
The Nationals outrighted pitcher Ryan Perry to Double-A Harrisburg Thursday to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Taylor Jordan, who is expected to make his MLB debut Saturday against the Mets. Perry hasn't pitched in the majors this season.
The Washington Nationals made another wave of roster cuts Monday and optioned the following players to Triple-A Syracuse: pitchers Ryan Perry, Erik Davis and Yunesky Maya, first baseman Chris Marrero, catcher Jhonatan Solano and outfielder Corey Brown. In addition, the Nationals also reassigned pitcher Ross Ohlendorf and shortstop Zach Walters to their minor-league camp.
Washington pitcher Ryan Perry will be converted from a reliever to a starter in order to provide more depth at the minor-league level, MASNSports.com reports. Perry, who was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse earlier this month, has exclusively served out of the bullpen in his four-year career. "We like his size," Nationals director of player development Doug Harris said Monday. "We like his athleticism. He has an ease to his delivery. We feel like, with Ryan, we have a chance to take a step back in order to take two steps forward."
