Keep track of the Tigers' recent transactions and injury updates throughout the season.

ROSTER MOVES

June 14: Reinstated RHP from 10-day IL
Fulmer was shelved for two weeks, initially to rest his arm before some discomfort in his shoulder briefly raised concerns. He returns fresh to help stabilize a bullpen that missed his veteran presence in the late innings.

June 14: Optioned INF to Triple-A Toledo
Paredes had some tough luck in his 3-for-21 stint, including a would-be walk-off home run robbed by Seattle outfielder Jake Fraley. But with Jeimer Candelario’s return imminent, the Tigers want Paredes getting regular at-bats in Toledo. He added to his infield versatility with two starts at shortstop.

June 13: Selected contract of RHP from Triple-A Toledo
The Tigers outrighted Farmer to Toledo on May 11 after a rough opening month that included 15 runs over 10 2/3 innings. His struggles continued for his first few outings with the Mud Hens, but he tossed 6 1/3 scoreless innings on three hits over his final four appearances in Toledo, striking out three.

INJURY UPDATES

Day to day

INF (left hand soreness)
Expected return:
TBD
Schoop was a late scratch from Sunday’s lineup amid a summer warm-up. He is batting .359 (14-for-39) in June with five home runs and 11 RBIs. (Last updated: June 13)

10-day IL

OF (right shoulder sprain)
Expected return
: Possibly late June
Hill crashed into the center-field wall at Comerica Park to make a spectacular catch, with his right shoulder taking the brunt of the impact. He’s scheduled to begin a rehab program in Lakeland, Fla., but will be out more than the minimum 10-day stint, according to manager A.J. Hinch. (Last updated: June 12)

RHP (right shoulder strain)
Expected return:
TBD
Teheran, who made the Tigers' Opening Day roster following a dominant Spring Training as a non-roster invite, made one start for Detroit on April 3 before reporting shoulder issues. He’s scheduled to report to the Tigers’ Spring Training facility in Lakeland, Fla., next week and try to ramp up activity, possibly including a throwing program. (Last updated: June 12)

C Wilson Ramos (lumbar spine strain)
Expected return:
Possibly late June/early July
Ramos went 2-for-4 in an extended spring training game in Lakeland, Fla., on June 11, setting up a Minor League rehab assignment.

"We've got a progression for him to get back behind the plate and ramp up his activity," manager A.J. Hinch said. (Last updated: June 11)

RHP Rony García (left knee sprain)
Expected return
: Possibly late 2021
García, who collapsed on the field during pregame warmups on June 10, is expected to require surgery to repair the meniscus in his left knee, according to manager A.J. Hinch. He'll seek additional opinions from doctors.

"The initial diagnosis is that it's going to need surgery," Hinch said. "And if it does, that's a lengthy absence." (Last updated: June 11)

C (left hamstring strain)
Expected return:
Possibly late June
Greiner is set to restart his rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on June 13, according to manager A.J. Hinch. With Jake Rogers and Eric Haase both doing well, the Tigers can exercise patience with Greiner before deciding his next step. (Last updated: June 11)

LHP Derek Holland (left shoulder inflammation)
Expected return
: TBD
Holland’s injury is in a different part of the shoulder than the strain that landed him on the injured list last month, manager A.J. Hinch said. The veteran lefty reported soreness after his velocity drop raised concern in his last outing June 9. (Last updated: June 10)

RHP Michael Fulmer (right shoulder strain)
Expected return
: Week of June 14
Tests have indicated no major injury with Fulmer, who reported shoulder fatigue then discomfort while trying to throw last week after a break. “We’re optimistic that it’s going to be a short stint,” manager A.J. Hinch said. “We’ll know a little bit more once we fire him back up, but the sense of relief for him and for us is that it’s nothing structurally big. It’s some inflammation and hopefully, that can be knocked out quickly.” (Last updated: June 8)

RHP Spencer Turnbull (right forearm tightness)
Expected return:
End of June
Turnbull reported to Lakeland, Fla., this week to begin his rehab process. Tests supported the initial diagnosis of a muscular injury rather than structural damage, according to manager A.J. Hinch. (Last updated: June 14)

OF (intercostal strain)
Expected return:
TBD
Reyes originally felt the injury a week before and returned, but an awkward swing June 1 in Milwaukee was a warning sign for manager A.J. Hinch to check beyond Reyes’ insistence that he felt fine.

“The more we talked to him, the more we realized it was bothering him to that extent,” Hinch said. “It became pretty clear that we need to shut him down for a few days.” (Last updated: June 3)

RHP (right pectoralis strain)
Expected return:
Possibly late June
Ramirez didn’t make an appearance for the Tigers before going on the IL. He was warming up for what would’ve been his Tigers debut on May 7 when he had to stop due to the injury. He’s ramping up his throwing work at Low-A Lakeland, manager A.J. Hinch said, and he is getting closer to getting on a mound again. He’s still a few weeks away from a potential return, though.
