Burying the Lead: Rogers to the DL
Posted on March 29, 2007
I subscribe to the Tigers official game notes (and you can too for free on the Tigers’ Web site). It’s usually a lot of boilerplate info, particularly in Spring Training, but there’s usually a worthwhile nugget or two.
Like, oh, item #3 (!) on the list today — after today’s starting pitchers and a recap of yesterday’s game:
ROGERS PLACED ON 15-DAY DL: The Tigers today announced the club has placed lefthanded pitcher Kenny Rogers on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 25 with a tired arm. Additionally, the Tigers announced today that lefthanded pitcher Bobby Seay has returned to major league camp after being assigned to minor league camp on Monday.
Funny, the folks over at MLB.com — or at least the gang responsible for Tigers.com — haven’t gotten the news yet. Here’s the main story welcoming me on the Tigers Web site:
The Tigers welcome the Houston Astros today for a 1:05 p.m. ET contest at Joker Marchant Stadium. Listen to all the action live on Gameday Audio when veteran southpaw Kenny Rogers makes his final Grapefruit League appearance.
Have a great day.
