The Detroit Tigers have put pitcher Phil Coke on the 15-day
Coke bruised his right ankle Monday night trying to field a bunt
in Detroit’s 6-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. The left-hander was
pitching well for a third straight start when he was injured. He is
1-5 with a 3.81 ERA this season.
Left-handed pitcher Adam Wilk has taken Coke’s spot on the
roster. Wilk was 3-4 with a 3.86 ERA in eight starts for Triple-A
Toledo this year.
The Tigers plan to call up left-hander Andy Oliver on Saturday
to take Coke’s spot in the rotation against the Boston Red Sox.
