In a corresponding move, the Tigers are recalling the contract of catcher Bryan Holaday from Triple-A Toledo.
Holaday spent last season in Detroit as the backup to Alex Avila and played in 62 games.
“When you set goals like that and … remind yourself of them constantly, it opens your eyes to see how many goals you can actually reach.”
While the Tigers have high hopes for McCann, they also like what they have seen over a span of time with Avila and Holaday.
After Wednesday’s 2-1 loss to the Kansas City Royals the Tigers now trail the Royals by 1.5 games in the American League Central, a feat in which not many thought would happen.
I would imagine Holaday won’t be rocking this suit when he greets Verlander at the mound.
The Detroit Tigers have recalled pitchers Jeremy Bonderman and Jose Alvarez and catcher Bryan Holaday from Triple-A Toledo.
After four games with the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens, catcher Alex Avila is on his way back to the Detroit Tigers.
The last few weeks have been a little rough on those behind the plate for the Detroit Tigers, so designated hitter Victor Martinez could be returning to the catcher spot this weekend.
Thursday he took a foul tip to the side of the head, and when he reported dizziness, the Tigers removed him from the game.
