Not unexpectedly, the Tigers have placed reliever Joel Zumaya on the 15-day disabled list even before he received an MRI on his injured right elbow.
The Tigers called up right-handed reliever Casey Fien from Triple-A Toledo, where he was 1-0 with a 2.29 ERA in 39 1/3 innings.
Fein was with the Tigers last season, but was well-traveled this spring when the Red Sox claimed him off waivers. Three days later he was claimed by Toronto and then days later, Detroit got him off waivers again.
Zumaya had one of the ugliest injuries of the year, collapsing in pain after a 99 mph pitch to Delmon Young in the eighth inning of Monday night's game against Minnesota. Zumaya didn't talk to reporters after the game, but it is expected to end his season.
UPDATE: The team announced Zumaya will officially miss the rest of the season because of a non-dsplaced fracture of the olecranon, a large bone in the elbow.
