Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Tests show no stress reaction
Rodriguez underwent tests on his ribs Monday which didn't reveal any stress reaction, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
The tests seemingly confirm that Rodriguez's diagnosis will be limited to a sprained left rib cage. He'll avoid throwing this week but is expected to resume next week. Given that he'll still need some time to build his arm back up, it seems unlikely that a minimum-length stay on the injured list is in play, though the Tigers have yet to clarify his timeline....

Tigers' Tarik Skubal: Completes side session Monday
Skubal (shin) completed his between-starts bullpen session Monday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Assuming Skubal's left shin isn't aching too much following the side session, he looks like he'll be good to go with few restrictions (if any) when his next turn in the rotation comes up Thursday at home versus the Guardians. Skubal's previous start over the weekend against the Guardians was cut short after he took a comebacker off the shin.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Derek Hill: On bench for second straight
Hill is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Twins.
Hill will be on the bench for the second game in a row with manager A.J. Hinch electing to reward Daz Cameron with another start in center field after the 25-year-old recorded a pair of hits and an RBI in Sunday's 4-2 win over Cleveland. Cameron and Hill are likely to continue sharing time in the outfield until Austin Meadows (vertigo) is cleared to return from the 10-day injured list.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Drew Hutchison: Rejoins Tigers on MiLB deal
Hutchison signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on May 19, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Hutchison elected free agency after being designated for assignment by Detroit on May 13, but he rejoined the club less than a week later. The right-hander will pitch at Triple-A Toledo now that he's back in the organization.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Retreats to bench
Barnhart isn't starting Monday against the Twins.
Barnhart started in the last three games and went 2-for-10 with a run and two strikeouts. Eric Haase will take over behind the dish and bat eighth.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jeimer Candelario: Not starting Monday
Candelario isn't starting Monday against the Twins.
Candelario drew starts in the last five games and went 3-for-18 with a solo home run, a walk and seven strikeouts. Harold Castro will take over at third base and bat fifth.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Alex Lange: Gains traction in late innings
Lange struck out three and gave up no hits and one walk over 1.1 scoreless innings en route to claiming his fifth hold of the season Sunday in the Tigers' 4-2 win over the Guardians.
Three of Lange's holds have come in his last four appearances, as manager A.J. Hinch has elected to carve out a key late-inning role for the right-hander in light of his hot start to the season. Through 18 appearances spanning 15.2 innings, Lange has allowed three earned runs on seven hits and six walks while whiffing 19.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Javier Baez: Homers in win Sunday
Baez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Guardians.
Baez also struck out twice in the contest, and it's been a bit of a choppy first season in Detroit. The shortstop is batting just .207 with a .575 OPS and three home runs through 31 games. This was also Baez's first long ball since April 26, but he's been a streaky performer at times in the past, so a hot streak could be just around the corner with Sunday perhaps serving as the jumping off point....

Tigers' Gregory Soto: Shuts door Sunday
Soto pitched a clean ninth inning to record the save in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Guardians.
The ninth inning started ominously, as Soto hit leadoff man Josh Naylor. However, the lefty retired the next batter, then got Andres Gimenez to ground into a double play to end the game. Soto has had a few hiccups this season, but he now has seven saves in eight chances to go with a solid 2.92 ERA. He's also pitched well lately with no runs allowed and three saves in his last three appearances. Manager A.J. Hinch has shown confidence in Soto despite some ups and downs, and fantasy managers should continue to do the same while he remains Detroit's closer.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Alex Faedo: Records first MLB win
Faedo (1-1) allowed two runs on six hits across 5.1 innings to earn the win Sunday against the Guardians. He walked two and struck out two.
Faedo had his Saturday start postponed due to inclement weather, so he had to wait an extra day before recording his first MLB win in his fourth career start. The righty has looked good in the early going, as he now has a 3.00 ERA and 1.33 WHIP across 21 innings. He's not missing a ton of bats, however, with just 14 strikeouts. That gives Faedo a smaller margin of error, but he'll look to keep rolling in his next scheduled start Friday against the same Cleveland squad.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Tarik Skubal: On track to start Thursday
Skubal (lower leg) has a bruise on his left shin but is scheduled to make his next turn through the rotation Thursday against the Guardians, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
The 25-year-old had Friday's start cut short after being struck by a line drive, but the injury appears to be a minor concern. Skubal still finished with five shutout innings and has a 21:5 K:BB and 0.83 WHIP over 18 scoreless frames in his past three outings. The lefty will still receive an extra day between starts to rest up, so he'll take on Cleveland at home rather than pitching Wednesday at Minnesota.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Austin Meadows: No timeline for return
Manager A.J. Hinch said Sunday there's no update on Meadows' (vertigo) status and that the team is "very concerned with what's going on," Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
The 26-year-old landed on the injured list early last week after experiencing dizziness, light-headedness and nausea, and he continues to recover at his home in Florida. Meadows won't be activated when first eligible this week, and it's unclear when he may be able to rejoin the team.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Akil Baddoo: Out with oblique injury
Baddoo is on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Toledo with an oblique strain, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
The 23-year-old hasn't seen game action with Toledo since May 13 and is unavailable due to the injury. It's unclear exactly how long Baddoo is expected to be sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Derek Hill: Resting Sunday
Hill is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Guardians.
Hill started four of the past six games, but he'll get Sunday off, with Daz Cameron getting the nod in center field and batting ninth. Hill should continue to start most days, at least while Austin Meadows (illness) and Victor Reyes (quadriceps) are on the injured list. Willi Castro and Robbie Grossman will start in the corners around Cameron on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Daz Cameron: Starting Sunday
Cameron is starting in center field and batting ninth in Sunday's game against the Guardians.
This will be Cameron's second appearance in a game since getting recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Monday. For the season, the 25-year-old has just one hit in eight at-bats, and he's nothing more than outfield depth at this point.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Elvin Rodriguez: Promoted, starting Monday
Rodriguez was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Sunday and is scheduled to start Monday against the Guardians.
The 24-year-old made the Opening Day roster and pitched in one game for Detroit before being sent to Toledo, and he'll now rejoin the big-league club. Rodriguez has a 3.57 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 21:13 K:BB over 22.2 innings at Triple-A this year, and he'll now receive a look in the Tigers' starting rotation with the unit sustaining yet another injury. Eduardo Rodriguez (ribs) was placed on the 15-day IL in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Goes on IL
The Tigers placed Rodriguez on the 15-day injured list Sunday with a left rib cage sprain.
Shortly after Rodriguez was pulled from his start with left side discomfort in Wednesday's loss to the Rays, manager A.J. Hinch noted that the lefty would require a trip to the IL. The Tigers delayed making the move while awaiting the results of his MRI, which evidently revealed no oblique strain but instead an injury to his rib cage. Detroit has yet to reveal a timeline for Rodriguez's return as a result of the diagnosis, but he won't be eligible to come off the IL until early June regardless.... See More ... See Less
