Last night, Will Rhymes was demoted to Toledo and the Tigers are calling Scott Sizemore up. This is an understandable move, as Rhymes is barely hitting over the Mendoza line and Sizemore has been absolutely tearing it up for the Mud Hens (to the tune of a .408/.495/.605/1.100 line). The Tigers have now lost seven in a row and something had to be done to shake up this lineup; thankfully Victor Martinez is set to be activated off the DL tomorrow and should also provide a little more pop. Rhymes had this to say late last night after the transaction was made:
Poor dude. I don’t blame him. I’m glad to hear he knows Jameson cures everything (in moderation, of course). Keep your head up, Will, you’ll be back in Detroit sometime.
