OF Alexis Gomez was sent down to Toledo today, with his replacement on the 25-man roster being P Colby Lewis:
This will be Lewis' first stint in the majors with the Tigers, having been riddled with injuries over the past couple seasons. His last appearance in the majors came with the Rangers in 2004.
Gomez has been used primarily in a defensive sub/pinch runner role, and has seen very limited action. The bullpen has been stretched over the past few games due to a few bad starts by the starting rotation. Hopefully Lewis can help this bullpen out quite a bit in his return to the big leagues.
