Tigers to recall Robbie Weinhardt tomorrow

The Free Press's John Lowe -- confirmed by MLB.com's Jason Beck -- reported right-handed reliever Robbie Weinhardt will make a return to the major leagues Wednesday when the Tigers recall him.

Since being optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Aug. 20, he's made four appearances and thrown for six innings. He's allowed two hits, three walks, no runs and has seven strikeouts.

In 18 major league appearances he has an ERA of 9.17 (xFIP of 4.28), 11 strikeouts and four holds. He walked six in 17.2 innings.

Lowe speculates that the recall signals Alfredo Figaro will start in place of Jeremy Bonderman the next time through the rotation, leaving the Tigers a man short in the bullpen again.

More players could be brought up to the Tigers than just Weinhardt, but the Mud Hens' season still has about a week left, which could play into the timing of such matters.
