Tigers option Crosby to Toledo
By Jason Beck / MLB.com | 03/15/12 5:03 PM ET

LAKELAND, Fla. -- The competition for the fifth starter is officially down one contestant. The Tigers announced after Thursday's 4-2 win over the Orioles that they've optioned Casey Crosby to Triple-A Toledo, and he'll open the season in the Mud Hens' rotation.

Crosby, a highly touted prospect before injuries took some toll, went to camp coming off a promising recovery season in 2011. He allowed three earned runs on six hits over 6 2/3 innings this spring, with six walks and five strikeouts. Most of the damage against him came in the last couple of outings, though he made quite a recovery against the Mets on Wednesday to finish strong.

"Casey Crosby has, to me, as high of a ceiling as anybody we've got in camp, [of the] Minor League guys," manager Jim Leyland said. "He's a potential blue-chipper."

The decision to send him to Toledo, Leyland said, came during a Thursday meeting with team president/general manager Dave Dombrowski and coaches.

"We said, 'Let's get him [in Minor League camp], because innings are going to be scarce here,'" Leyland said.
