Monday afternoon the Tigers placed SP Jordan Zimmermann on the 15-day DL with a strained neck. By Monday night the injury list became one name longer. SP Daniel Norris left Monday night’s contest with the Indians with an oblique strain suffered after lunging for a ball hit back to the mound. Currently the Tigers are not officially placing Norris on the DL. They will recall Buck Farmer from Toledo to fill out the roster.
The Tigers continue the series in Cleveland tonight with coverage at 6:45 pm on ESPN 101.9. Anibal Sanchez will take the hill for Detroit. Right-hander Carlos Carrasco will pitch for Cleveland. First pitch 7:10.
