Wentz will be called up from Triple-A Toledo to start Wednesday's game against the Athletics, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Wentz owns a strong 33.8 percent strikeout rate through five starts for Toledo this season, though that's come with a 13.0 percent walk rate and a 4.12 ERA. Since his return from March 2020 Tommy John surgery last May, he owns a mediocre 4.42 ERA over 23 starts in the minors, but the Tigers will nevertheless give him a chance on the biggest stage. He'll at least get a relatively easy opponent to debut against, but he'll need to find the strike zone more consistently if he's to stick in the majors.
