Detroit— Charlie Furbush is back. Casper Wells is out.

The Tigers recalled Furbush from Triple A Toledo after Tuesday's 8-3 win over the A's. They'll use Furbush out of the bullpen, where he excelled before the team tried him in the rotation.

The Wells demotion, meanwhile, is a bit of a surprise because he has some power and can play all three outfield positions.

"This one hurts," manager Jim Leyland said of the decision on Wells, hitting .259 with four homers and 12 RBIs in 63 games. "But there are only 25 spots."


The Tigers also sent down reliever Adam Wilk, in a move to create a roster spot for Wednesday night's starting pitcher, left-hander Duane Below.
