Troy Percival on the DL

While I always like to hear what Will Carroll has to say about any injury, for now I’ll have to accept the vague mainstream reports that call it “some kind of forearm injury.”

While 3.65 is hardly a good ERA for a closer, it was coming down after topping out well above five for most of April. It’s too bad that the Tigers “other” big free agent acquisition has also gone down with an injury. The officlal report is putting him out for 4-6 weeks.

In the meantime, Urbina will close. Chris Spurling was called up to fill Percival’s roster spot.

And if you’re don’t subscribe to Baseball Prospectus’ premium content, Will Carroll’s injury report, Under the Knife, is well worth the subscription by itself. Be sure to check it out.
