Tigers placed RHP Troy Percival on the 15-day disabled, retroactive to May 8, with a partial tear of his right flexor pronator muscle mass.
The Tigers hadn't indicated that Percival was having any problems. Still, this hardly comes as a surprise. Ugueth Urbina will move into the closer's role, and Kyle Farnsworth and Jamie Walker will be used as setup men. Expect an update later on a possible timetable for Percival's return. May. 9 - 6:28 pm et
