Injuries & Roster Moves: Ramos on waivers

7:14 PM UTC

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


June 20: Requested unconditional release waivers on C
Ramos’ Tigers tenure effectively ended when Detroit designated his contract for assignment earlier in the week to free up a 40-man roster spot. The Tigers are committed to Jake Rogers and Eric Haase as their catching duo and don’t want to commit a roster spot for Ramos to be a part-time designated hitter. Assuming Ramos clears waivers, he’ll become a free agent available for any team to sign.

June 19: IF placed on 10-day IL
Goodrum sustained a sprain to the tendon at the tip of his left index finger during Friday's game against the Angels.

June 19: IF recalled from Triple-A Toledo
Paredes gets his second call-up in as many weeks, having filled in for Jeimer Candelario last week while he was on the bereavement list. Paredes is expected to make some starts at shortstop in Goodrum’s place.


Day to day


10-day IL

OF (right shoulder sprain)
Expected return
: Possibly end of June
Hill began a rehab assignment at Low-A Lakeland on Saturday and has gone 3-for-10 in two games as a designated hitter. He’ll continue to DH there until he can throw at any distance without discomfort, hopefully around mid-week. From there, his rehab assignment will transfer to Triple-A Toledo. (Last updated: June 20)

SS (left hand finger sprain)
Expected return: TBD
Goodrum injured himself after diving for a ball in the sixth inning of the Tigers' game against the Angels on June 18. The injury is at the top of his left index finger, manager A.J. Hinch said. Goodrum spent June 19 undergoing tests and consulting with hand specialists, but initial exams suggest the injury isn’t expected to force a long-term absence. (Last updated: June 19)

RHP (right pectoralis strain)
Expected return:
Possibly late June
Ramirez began a rehab assignment for Triple-A Toledo with four outs of perfect relief on June 18. He needed just nine pitches to throw 1 1/3 innings, so he’ll get at least one more appearance to stretch out his workload before he’s considered for a return to Detroit, where he was injured warming up for what would’ve been his Tigers debut on May 7.

LHP (left arm discomfort)
Expected return
: After the All-Star break
Boyd is dealing with muscular tendinitis and won’t throw for the next couple weeks. Manager A.J. Hinch said Boyd won’t make another start before the All-Star break, but he added that the lefty does not have ligament damage in his elbow as the Tigers take a conservative approach. (Last updated: June 18)

RHP (right forearm tightness)
Expected return:
End of June
Turnbull reported to Lakeland, Fla., and has not thrown a baseball. Manager A.J. Hinch noted that Turnbull is close to beginning plyometric exercises, which would be followed by a return to baseball activities. Hinch added that tests supported the initial diagnosis of a muscular injury rather than structural damage. (Last updated: June 17)

OF (intercostal strain)
Expected return:
Reyes reported to Lakeland, Fla., and has started to take swings and do more baseball activities, manager A.J. Hinch said. Reyes will play in a game while in Lakeland before being reassessed to see if he is ready to begin a rehab assignment, but the club is making sure he does not experience any other setbacks before his program is ramped up.

“That's why it takes a little bit longer as we are flushing out every possible soreness," said Hinch. "The problem at this time of year is guys are sore for a lot of different reasons outside of acute injuries." (Last updated: June 17)

RHP (right shoulder strain)
Expected return
Lange had apparently been dealing with shoulder discomfort for a while, according to manager A.J. Hinch, which makes his mid-inning exit on Monday more concerning. (Last updated: June 15)

RHP (right shoulder strain)
Expected return:
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)

LHP (left shoulder inflammation)
Expected return
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)

60-day IL

RHP (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. He was transferred to the 60-day injured list on June 15.

"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 15)
