Hardy was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following Saturday's loss to the Royals. Hardy gave up an earned run during his five pitches on the mound Saturday and was unable to record an out. The 29-year-old will be a candidate for a call-up later in the summer, although his ERA went up to 5.84 after his lackluster Saturday outing.
Hardy was recalled late Thursday night and will be available for Friday's game. Hardy was sent down to Triple-A to get reps following recovery from shoulder impingement. He should be healthy and clear to resume his previous role in long relief, thus limiting his fantasy value at least short term.
Hardy will be recalled by the Tigers prior Friday's game against the White Sox. The Tigers will add some depth to the bullpen Friday with the addition of Hardy to the active roster. He has appeared in six games at the big league level this season, notching a 2.45 ERA with five strikeouts in 7.1 innings of work. According to Matthew Mowery of the Oakland Press, Kyle Ryan will be sent down in a corresponding move.
Hardy has been optioned to Triple-A, reports MLive.com. Hardy had only made six appearances this season after coming off the disabled list for a shoulder impingement. He may just need reps on the mound and that's hard to do in the bigs. Steven Moya was recalled to take his spot on the roster.
Hardy will be activated from the disabled list Monday. Hardy completed his rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo after a two-third-inning outing Friday in which he walked one and struck out another. Hardy will slot back into the Tigers bullpen as one of the main lefties at manager Brad Ausmus' disposal. To make room for him on the roster, Logan Kensing was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.
