DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers today placed righthanded pitcher Troy Percival on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 8, with a partial tear of his right flexor pronator muscle mass. To replace Percival on the club's 25-man roster, the Tigers recalled the contract of righthanded pitcher Chris Spurling from Triple A Toledo. Percival posted a 1-1 record with three saves and a 3.65 ERA (12.1IP/5ER) in 12 games with the Tigers. He is in his first season with the club after signing with the team as a free agent on November 17, 2004.

Spurling joins the Tigers after appearing in 12 games with the Mud Hens, posting a 2-1 record with one save and a 4.12 ERA (19.2IP/9ER). Spurling spent the entire 2004 season on the disabled list after undergoing ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction surgery on March 4, 2004. He spent the entire 2003 season with the Tigers, posting a 1-3 record with three saves and a 4.68 ERA (77.0IP/40ER).

Detroit's season is going down the drain fast. With Maggs sure to miss most of the season, this latest injury all but seals their fourth-place finish in the AL Central.

Wait - you mean throwing huge contracts at old and/or injury-prone guys might result in your having significant payroll on the DL?

Shocking.

They got what everyone else knew was coming. It's amazing the money they throw around at such risky free agents. Although, every free agent and their brother seemed to leave the Tigers high and dry, so I guess they had to do something...oh well...

Yeah, I can't say that I'm surprised. Percival has been very injury prone the past few years. He was a very risky signing. Did anyone else also notice when we faced him in April, his velocity seemed way down? The gun was only registering about 89mph. Percival used to bring it around 98mph consistently.

Pizza Pizza... The worst thing that happened to the tigers this year was the fact that the Red Wings couldn't spend any money this year... The Tigers spent big on big question marks and then expected something other than this outcome? If this team was in my fantasy baseball league they'd be the guy that took Barry Bonds in the first round!

Sometimes the best deals are the ones you DON'T make. Too bad for them they didn't learn this.

The Tigers have to overpay because they are in Detroit. Without overpaying nobody would play there.
