Stay current with all the roster movement and personnel decisions with the TigsTown Transaction Blog. Jade Todd makes his full-season debut for 2011 as Ramon Lebron gets shut down with a sore shoulder.

07/07/11

Placed Ramon Lebron (RHP) on the 7-day DL (shoulder)

Re-assigned Jade Todd (LHP) from GCL to West Michigan

Signed Derick Hudgins (SS)

Scott Matyas (RHP) retired

Analysis: This is Lebron's second stint on the DL this year after having back problems earlier in the summer. He is reportedly just having some soreness in his throwing shoulder and the team is being cautious with him.

Todd's return to West Michigan marks his 2011 full-season debut. He missed most of spring training and a significant chunk of extended spring dealing with some personal issues but is back and reports indicate he has been throwing well in the GCL.

Hudgins was signed to help fill the shortstop void in the GCL, while Matyas' Tiger career comes to a speedy end.

Analysis: The Tigers splurged once again on international signing day. In 2010, they snagged Danry Vasquez out of the Dominican; this time around they grabbed a talented infielder in Adelin Santa. The 16-year old Santa comes in at 6-3 and weighs 190 pounds. He is hitting 5-for-19 so far in the IPL with a home run and five RBI.
