Time may be running out on Tigers

BY foxsports • October 3, 2009

On Friday night, after his team absorbed an 8-0 clunker at the hands of the out-of-contention Chicago White Sox, Tigers manager Jim Leyland was asked about Alfredo Figaro, who will start for him Saturday night.

Figaro is a rookie. He is 25 years old. He hadn't pitched above Class A until this year. He has two big-league starts and two big-league wins and a 5.74 ERA. He is pitching because Monday's rainout jumbled the rotation.
