Spurling Down, Gomez Up, Maroth to 60 Day

The Tigers did some shuffling lately, bringing up OF Alexis Gomez to take Chris Spurling's spot on the big league roster:

Alexis Gomez is back with the Tigers, called up today from Toledo to take the roster spot created when Chris Spurling was sent down. Mike Maroth was moved to the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man

Gomez is currently hitting .222/.263/.333 with 2 RBI in the majors this season.

Looks like Mike's elbow was seriously injured. The Tigers will continue to try and find a suitable replacement for Maroth in the rotation, as both Roman Colon and Zach Miner both have had made spot-starts in his absence thus far.
