The Tigers put Rodney on the DL today. His shoulder was stiffening up. Tram said it’s common for guys who go through Tommy John surgery to have shoulder tightness out of the gate. Hopefully he’ll be back to form because he looked quite good this spring. It does make the Tigers decision a little easier though, so German will be making the squad.
Tigers are down 4-0 early. Knotts gave up two homers in the first inning.
