Lefty-for-lefty swap: Ian Krol returns from DL, Patrick McCoy goes on
DETROIT — Ian Krol’s rehab stint didn’t last as long as he thought it would.
Expecting to pitch Friday night and Sunday afternoon for Class A West Michigan, then return to the Detroit Tigers after their off day, instead, he’ll be back with the Tigers Sunday night.
Krol was recalled from his DL stint Sunday afternoon, replacing Pat McCoy on the active roster. McCoy injured his hamstring in Saturday’s game, and was placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Krol threw a clean inning on Friday, but did not end up pitching as planned Sunday afternoon.
