Wilkin Ramirez Recalled; Casey Fien Demoted

New, 31 comments

Per the Detroit Tigers Game Notes, outfielder Wilkin Ramirez has been recalled from Triple-A Toledo. To clear a spot for him on the roster, reliever Casey Fien was sent back to the Mud Hens.

There were rumblings this afternoon (via Twitter and elsewhere) that the Tigers were getting ready to make a move. Looks like we have it. Although you have to wonder if this is the only one that happens, with the bullpen now a man short.

Ramirez was hitting .274/.351/.455 with 13 homers and 40 RBIs in 347 at-bats with Toledo. In a cup-of-coffee appearance with the Tigers earlier this year, he went 1-for-3 with a home run.

Fien, meanwhile, was something of a disappointment (especially to those of us that were excited to see him pitch) in his four games with the Tigers. He allowed four earned runs and six hits in four innings, with six strikeouts and three walks.

UPDATE: MLive.com's Steve Kornacki reports that Ramirez will bat leadoff tonight and play left field.
