The Tigers placed relievers Bobby Seay and Zach Miner on the disabled list this morning, among other moves they announced.
Bobby Seay should hopefully talk about the results of his visits to specialists soon. His pitching arm has ... something wrong with it. What's wrong? We don't know. It was initially misdiagnosed as tendinitis or bursitis is all Seay has said about it.
ETA: Well, this isn't very good news to wake up to. Seay has a torn rotator cuff, which he will try to rehab. - Allikazoo
Miner has pain in his elbow -- it's said to be a minor strain in the ligaments and muscles. He should be on path to pitch when he is eligible to come off the DL.
If the Tigers were to trade Nate Robertson, right-hander Eddie Bonine would almost certainly make the team in some capacity or other.
The other moves:
- Daniel Schlereth and Wilkin Ramirez optioned to Triple-A Toledo
- Phi Dumatrait, Enrique Gonzalez and Maxim St. Pierre sent to minor league camp.
