Wentz (elbow) had his contract selected to the Tigers' 40-man roster Friday.

The 23-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery in March, but Detroit still opted to protect him from the Rule 5 draft by adding him to the 40-man roster before Friday's deadline. Wentz is unlikely to be available before the second half of 2021, so he figures to be moved to the 60-day injured list at some point.
