Tigers | Matt Tuiasosopo to DL

The Detroit Tigers placed OF Matt Tuiasosopo (intercostal) on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left intercostal Friday, June 21. The move is retroactive to June 20. In corresponding moves, the team recalled OF Avisail Garcia and RP Al Alburquerque from Triple-A Toledo.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia could split time in left field with the struggling Andy Dirks. Look to add Garcia only in AL leagues. Alburquerque could see valuable late-inning work now that Jose Valverde is no longer on the roster, but it remains to be seen if Leyland will trust Alburquerque for the occasional save opp if Joaquin Benoit is unavailable. That'll likely fall to Phil Coke or Drew Smyly, though.
