Tigers' Joey Wentz: Resumes facing hitters

Wentz (shoulder) threw a live batting practice session Tuesday at the Tigers' spring training complex in Florida, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Wentz has been sidelined since May 31, when he suffered a shoulder injury while making a spot start for the Tigers. Since he was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following that outing, Wentz currently resides on the affiliate's 7-day injured list rather than the Tigers' 10-day IL. Now that he's facing hitters again, Wentz could soon be cleared to head out on a rehab assignment at one of the Tigers' lower-level affiliates before he rejoins the Triple-A rotation.

Tigers' Joey Wentz: Should throw soon

Wentz isn't dealing with anything worse than a stinger in his shoulder and should resume throwing soon, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Wentz left his May 31 start against the Twins with what was originally called a strained left shoulder, but it looks as though the injury isn't as bad as originally feared. He still has work to do before he's able to return to game action, but the result could have been much worse for the Tigers.

Tigers' Joey Wentz: Getting medical checkup

Tigers manager A.J. Hinch said Wednesday that Wentz will undergo further testing on his injured shoulder, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. The Tigers classified Wentz's injury as a left shoulder strain when he exited his start in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Twins after tossing four scoreless frames, but the upcoming checkup should provide more information with regard to a possible recovery timeline for the 24-year-old. Detroit had already optioned Wentz to Triple-A Toledo following Tuesday's outing, so he could be placed on the affiliate's 7-day injured list in the coming days.

Tigers' Joey Wentz: Exits with shoulder strain

Wentz was removed from Tuesday's start in Game 2 of the doubleheader against the Twins with a strained left shoulder. He was optioned to Triple-A Toledo after the contest. The 24-year-old was promoted to start Tuesday's nightcap and pitched well with only one single allowed over four scoreless innings, but he was forced to leave early due to the injury. Wentz was poised to return to Toledo regardless since he was serving as the 27th man for the twin bill, but the injury could affect his availability for another call-up to the big leagues, depending on its severity.

Tigers' Joey Wentz: Called up ahead of start

The Tigers recalled Wentz from Triple-A Toledo ahead of his scheduled start in the second game of the team's doubleheader with the Twins in Detroit.

The 24-year-old lefty will be looking for better results in his second MLB start, after he struggled mightily in his Tigers debut back on May 11. He lasted just 2.2 innings in a start against Oakland, giving up six earned runs on seven hits and two walks.

Tigers' Joey Wentz: Set to start for Tigers on Tuesday

Wentz (lower leg) will be called up as the Tigers' 27th man to start the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Twins, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Wentz exited Wednesday's start at Triple-A Toledo after he was hit on the shin by a comebacker, but the injury is apparently of no concern, as he's been cleared to make his second major-league start Tuesday.

Tigers vs. Athletics preview: Joey Wentz to the main stage

The offseason additions the Detroit Tigers made over the offseason drew most of the attention to the major league club this spring. However, rumors of the end of the rebuilding era may have been a bit exaggerated. The Tigers are still trying to develop their main crop of top prospects at the major league level while waiting on Riley Greene to heal up. But without a host of stars on hand already, the major league roster is going to need a steady influx of talent in the years ahead if the Tigers are going to build a legit contender.
