MINNEAPOLIS (AP) â€” The Detroit Tigers have added two players from Triple-A Toledo: including 30-year-old catcher Max St. Pierre.
The moves were made before Wednesday's game against Minnesota, the day major league rosters could expand beyond 25 players.
St. Pierre will make his major league debut, after spending his entire 14-season pro career (978 games) in Detroit's minor league system. He batted .300 with five homers and 22 RBIs in 39 games for the Mud Hens this year.
Right-handed reliever Robbie Weinhardt was also added. Weinhardt was 1-1 with a 1.57 ERA in 24 games for the Mud Hens. This is his second call-up of the season.
