Prior to tonight’s game, the Tigers signed Freddy Garcia to a minor league deal. He’s going to start out at Lakeland to build up his arm strength and the hope is, he’ll be with the Mud Hens sooner rather then later.
Talk about a guy who fell quicly. Garcia was a key part of the White Sox 2005 World Series run and then he won 17 games for the White Sox in 2006. He was then dealt to the Phillies where he won just one game before going down with a torn labrum and he hasn’t pitched since. Now he has a second chance and hopefully it turns into a worthwhile experiment for the Tigers.
Tigers are up 4-1 but the Jays are threatening in the top of the seventh.
