Mud Hens Invade Detroit

Toledo's loss (in the International League playoffs) is Detroit's gain, as outfielder Brent Clevlen and pitcher Clay Rapada have been called up and added to the Tigers' major league roster. (via Danny Knobler)

In 90 games with the Mud Hens, Clevlen hit .304/.360/.664 with seven home runs and 36 RBIs. He missed five weeks in May and June on the disabled list with a broken finger. Clevlen played 31 games with Detroit last season, hitting .282/.317/.641 with three home runs and six RBIs.

Rapada only appeared in two games for Toledo after coming over in the Craig Monroe trade, totaling a 11.57 ERA and three strikeouts in 2 1/3 innings. He spent the majority of the season with Triple-A Iowa, where he pitched in 55 games and put up a 7-2 record and 3.58 ERA. Rapada also notched 17 saves and struck out 50 batters in 55 1/3 innings.

Catcher Dane Sardinha also took the I-75 Express up to Detroit, but won't be added to the active roster unless Pudge Rodriguez or Mike Rabelo suffers an injury. (via Jason Beck)
