The Detroit Tigers have placed SP Kyle Lobstein (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list because of left shoulder soreness. He is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Sunday, May 24. In a corresponding move, INF Dixon Machado was promoted from Class AAA Toledo. SP Buck Farmer will be recalled from Toledo to start in Lobstein's place against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Thursday, April 28.
Fantasy Tip: Farmer struggled during a brief stint in the majors last season but he has gotten off to a strong start at Toledo this year, posting a 5-1 record with a 2.98 ERA. His high strikeout totals could make him intriguing to owners in AL-only leagues.

Detroit Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said SP Jacob Turner is not on the trading block this winter. The team was reportedly dangling Turner in a deal to land Chicago Cubs SP Matt Garza. "We are not looking to trade Jacob Turner," Dombrowski said. "We love the guy. But I have received calls from clubs wondering if we would be interested in certain players because they have interest in our players. And he is a guy they ask about immediately because he is held in such high esteem." Turner will be seriously considered for the No. 5 rotation spot in spring training. Other teams have also inquired about 3B Nick Castellanos, C Rob Brantly, INFs Dixon Machado and Hernan Perez and OF Avisail Garcia.
