The Tigers optioned Hall to Triple-A Toledo following Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Mets. Hall joined the Tigers ahead of the series finale to provide an extra arm out of the bullpen, but he ultimately wasn't needed with starting pitcher Spencer Turnbull covering seven frames. Austin Adams, whom the Tigers scooped up off waivers from the Twins, will take Hall's spot on the active roster.
Hall was called up from Triple-A Toledo on Sunday. Hall was optioned to Toledo after three rough appearances in spring training but now makes his way back to the majors. The 25-year-old has struggled with a 6.70 WHIP and 1.67 WHIP in six starts at Triple-A, though he does have a 50:14 K:BB through 41.2 innings. It remains unclear whether Hall will receive a look in the starting rotation against the Orioles this week or if he will simply work out of the bullpen.
Hall was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Friday. Hall struggled in major-league camp in three appearances as he allowed four runs on six hits and one walk over 2.2 innings. The 25-year-old made his MLB debut in September but struggled by giving up 13 earned runs on 19 hits across eight innings.
Hall allowed nine runs (six earned) on eight hits and a walk over an inning of work in Saturday's 15-0 loss to the Indians. He also hit a batter. Hall was thrust into duty early, as starter Michael Fulmer exited after five pitches (and two solo home runs allowed) due to right knee inflammation. Hall didn't get any defensive help in the first inning, as the Tigers committed two errors behind him, but he was also much too hittable as four more runs scored for Cleveland. The 25-year-old came back out to start the second, but he got the hook after starting the frame with a walk, five straight hits and a hit batter. It was a disastrous MLB debut for Hall, but with the Tigers out of contention, he could get a few more opportunities to make a better impression before the season is over.
Hall will be promoted from Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Hall impressed during his time on the farm this season, compiling a shiny 2.13 ERA and 1.09 WHIP with 135 strikeouts across 114.1 innings combined between Triple-A Toledo and Double-A Erie. The 25-year-old will now get a chance to showcase his talent at the highest level. Hall worked strictly as a starter for the Mud Hens, though it's unclear if he'll be given an opportunity to start for the big club down the stretch. Seeing as he's not currently on the 40-man roster, the Tigers will have to make a corresponding roster move before promoting him.
