Tigers' Rony Garcia: Shuttled to 60-day IL
The Tigers transferred Garcia (shoulder) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Thursday.

Tigers' Rony Garcia: Placed on 15-day IL
Garcia was placed on the 15-day injured list with right shoulder soreness Monday.
Garcia returned from the injured list to start Sunday's game against the Twins, but he was removed from the start due to what was initially considered tightness in his bicep. Although right shoulder soreness is the same diagnosis as the injury that forced him to miss the last three weeks, manager A.J. Hinch said Sunday that Garcia's current injury is unrelated to the previous issue. The right-hander will be shut down from throwing until the issue subsides, so it's possible that he requires more than the minimum of 15 days on the shelf.... See More ... See Less

Garcia (shoulder) said he plans to do some throwing on the field Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Garcia's ability to start up a throwing program just three days after landing on the 15-day injured list supports the notion that his sore right shoulder isn't anything too serious. The right-hander is eligible to come off the IL on July 15, but since the Tigers will only play three more games after that date before heading into the All-Star break, he won't be a lock to get activated even if he's fully cleared by then....
