Brayan Villarreal optioned to make room for Doug Fister

Doug Fister will make his return to the rotation on Monday for the Detroit Tigers, starting for the first time since suffering an injury around his ribs April 7 during his first appearance of the year during the opening week of the season. That means room had to be made.

Brayan Villarreal has been optioned to Triple-A Toledo to make room. Villarreal has not made an appearance since April 27, when he gave up a run to the Yankees in the ninth inning to take the loss.

Detroit begins a west coast swing Monday, starting with a 10 p.m. game against the Seattle Mariners.
