Report: Tigers Acquire Lefty Daniel Schlereth, Assign Him To Toledo

By Ashley Dunkak

 CBS DETROIT – Left-handed reliever Daniel Schlereth has landed back in the Detroit Tigers organization, according to the Toledo Blade. Detroit originally acquired Schlereth in 2010 and cut him loose after the 2012 season.

Schlereth will pitch for the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens, whose bullpen has been depleted by the recent call-ups of Blaine Hardy, Chad Smith and Pat McCoy, all of whom have made the jump from the minors to the majors within the last two weeks.

This season Schlereth has logged 21 games with the Indianapolis Indians, the Triple-A team of the Pittsburgh Pirates, and recorded a 7.23 ERA. In 18.2 innings this season he has allowed 18 hits and 18 walks while striking out 18.

Between 2009 and 2012, Schlereth pitched in 94 games in the majors, including 73 for the Tigers.
