Todd Jones injured, Leyland hit in face

Becks Blog

Apparently Todd Jones has been feeling some discomfort in his shoulder for the past six weeks, but Wednesday was the night in which it became a significant enough issue to shelve him. He couldn't loosen it up in his warmup tosses and had to stop, he said, and he couldn't get extension on his arm when he pitched. He'll get an MRI Thursday or Friday, and Jim Leyland said it's a "strong possibility" they'll make a move to get another reliever (not Farnsworth, he won't join the team until Friday) and likely put Jones on the DL.

Speaking of Leyland, he has hit by a foul ball on the side of his face during the game. The ball took a funny bounce and smacked him, but he kept on managing without medical attention.

Tigers send Jones to 15-day DL
Rapada recalled for one game, but will exit for Farnsworth
By Jason Beck / MLB.com

CLEVELAND -- The Tigers placed reliever Todd Jones on the 15-day disabled list Thursday while they await test results to determine the extent of his right shoulder injury.

Jones revealed after his rough outing Wednesday night against the Indians that he has been pitching through shoulder pain. The 40-year-old right-hander had been feeling it for the last six weeks, by his estimation, but it reached the point Wednesday that he couldn't loosen up properly or extend through his pitches. His admission after the game confirmed a suspicion manager Jim Leyland said he'd had for about the last two weeks.

The timetable coincides with Jones' struggles, which eventually led to Leyland's decision last weekend to start using Fernando Rodney as closer. Jones has allowed 25 hits over 16 2/3 innings since June 15, during which he has a 6.48 ERA. That includes Kelly Shoppach's home run Wednesday night.

Jones was scheduled to undergo an MRI exam in Cleveland on Thursday afternoon While the Tigers finished up their four-game series against the Indians at Progressive Field.

Detroit recalled sidearming lefty reliever Clay Rapada from Triple-A Toledo to take Jones' place on the roster for Thursday only. Rapada made the drive from Toledo to Cleveland in the morning in time for the first pitch and was one of the few fresh relievers the Tigers had for the game after Wednesday's 13-inning victory.

Rapada went 2-0 with a 3.46 ERA in 14 appearances for the Tigers earlier this season before he was optioned to the Mud Hens in June. He'll be optioned back again after Thursday's game to make room on the roster for Kyle Farnsworth, who was acquired Wednesday from the Yankees in the Ivan Rodriguez trade. Farnsworth will join the team Friday at Tampa Bay.

"I'm looking forward to it," Leyland said, "because we need the help."
