The move was announced after today's loss to those damned Twins.
The much-pondered question of what the Tigers would do with Fu-Te Ni got an answer Wednesday afternoon, when he was optioned to Triple-A Toledo postgame. No return move was immediately announced, but the first candidate you probably thought of isn't the guy. Leyland said Ryan Perry would not be the guy coming up.
Ni had been a gas can in his recent outings, so his demotion isn't surprising.
Feel free to start guessing who gets the call up on Friday!
