Tigers place Jones back on 15-day DL
Club purchases contract of Glover from Triple-A Toledo
By Jason Beck / MLB.com

DETROIT -- The Tigers placed reliever Todd Jones back on the disabled list with a sore right shoulder Sunday morning, two days after he returned from the DL.

Jones, Detroit's closer for much of the last three seasons until last month, missed two weeks with inflammation in his right shoulder before he was activated on Friday. Manager Jim Leyland hoped to give him an easy inning back before working him into more close and late-game situations, but a ninth-inning appearance Friday turned into a 38-pitch outing that included two fielding errors behind him, three walks by Jones and five unearned runs.

That workload alone left Jones unavailable for Saturday's game, but there was no immediate sign of any problems. Now, Jones will be out until at least the end of August, leaving Fernando Rodney and Kyle Farnsworth as Detroit's primary late-inning relievers.

To fill Jones' spot on the 25-man roster, the Tigers purchased the contract of right-hander Gary Glover, who had joined Triple-A Toledo less than two weeks ago. Signed on August 9, Glover made three appearances out of the Mud Hens bullpen, tossing four scoreless innings with three hits and four strikeouts. He pitched 34 innings over 29 appearances for Tampa Bay this season, posting a 5.82 ERA before the Rays designated him for assignment on July 28.

Sad
As much as I hate to say it, he will probably end up retiring at the end of the year.

Uhm, actually if we are being more technical the Tigers got screwed by Jones. He was the one that didn't tell him that his arm had been hurting since June. He was the one that lost all of those games.

I guess we can blame JL too because he left him out there for too long the day that he came back but still. The Tigers didn't make him pitch bad.

I blame Dombrowski for resigning him.
