Miner to Start Sunday

Tigers pitcher Zach Miner will get the start on Sunday against the Boston Red Sox. This comes a day after he was called up to replace Hannahan on the Tigers roster. The Tigers have been searching for a pitcher to replace Mike Maroth in the rotation, with Roman Colon getting the first audition on Tuesday night.

The other shoe fell with news of Mike Maroth's injury. Zach Miner will start Sunday instead of Roman Colon, who will work out of the bullpen from now on. Leyland wouldn't commit to Miner beyond a couple starts, but if someone else gets a shot, it looks like the next guy would come from the Minors.
