Stay current with all the roster movement and personnel decisions with the TigsTown Transaction Blog. Jeremy Bonderman officially joined the Mud Hens roster and impressed in his debut outing, meanwhile a couple of unfortunate injuries have hit the GCL club.

07/19/13

Signed Jeremy Bonderman (RHP) to minor league contract, assigned to Toledo

Activated Kenny Faulk (LHP) from Toledo’s 7-day disabled list

Placed Brayan Villarreal (RHP) on Toledo’s 7-day disabled list with sprained right thumb

Placed Pat Misch (LHP) on Toledo’s 7-day disabled list

Placed Derek Hankins (RHP) on Toledo’s temporary inactive list

Transferred Jon Link (RHP) to Toledo from Erie

Zach Maggard (C ) retired from Erie

Activated Warwick Saupold (RHP) from Erie’s 7-day disabled list

Placed Joe Rogers (LHP) on Lakeland’s 7-day disabled list

Assigned Tim Remes (C ) to Lakeland from GCL Tigers

Placed Austin Green (C ) on Connecticut’s 7-day disabled list

Placed Franklin Navarro (C ) on GCL Tigers’ 7-day disabled list

Placed David Paulino (RHP) on GCL Tigers’ 60-day disabled list with a right elbow injury

Analysis:

The evolution of the Mud Hens’ bullpen continues, as former Tigers’ starting pitcher Jeremy Bonderman joins the group, with the organization continuing to search for usable bullpen arms. Kenny Faulk also returns from the disabled list as Brayan Villarreal heads to it - both at this point are outside possibilities to help the Tigers this year. Bonderman did toss a scoreless inning of relief in his first appearance on Friday, striking out one.

Most concerning beyond Toledo is the news out of the GCL, with two prominent names hitting the disabled list; Paulino had impressed so far this summer, but an elbow injury looks like it will sideline him until 2014. Navarro’s injury isn’t thought to be as serious, but nonetheless another prominent name getting caught by the injury bug.
