Demoted to Triple-A earlier this month just six starts after his imperfect game, Armando Galarraga is scheduled to rejoin the Tigers’ rotation tonight against the Rangers in Detroit.
At the time of the demotion Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said the move was made primarily to get Galarraga some work during the All-Star break and that appears to be the case, as he was in Toledo long enough to pitch just once (and appear at the ESPY awards alongside Jim Joyce).
Of course, that 22-year-old rookie Andy Oliver flopped in his first taste of the majors, going 0-4 with a 7.36 ERA in five starts, made the decision to recall Galarraga so quickly much easier. Galarraga is 3-2 with a 4.45 ERA and 22/17 K/BB ratio in 45.2 innings overall this season, giving him a 4.60 career ERA in 385.2 innings.
