The Tigers promoted veteran infielder Brandon Inge from Triple-A Toledo on Saturday, after watching him catch fire for a three-week stretch against a lower level of competition in the International League.

He has apparently carried some of that minor league momentum with him back to Detroit.

Inge finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in his return to the big leagues Saturday, helping the first-place Tigers to a 10-1 blowout win over the second-place Indians. He also played the entire game at third base, experiencing no difficulty on defense.

Inge, a former All-Star, is expected to draw semi-regular starts at the hot corner down the stretch.

    His def is such a huge upgrade and his OPS vs. Left handed pitching is respectable. if he hits .250+ with power it’s a HUGE upgrade
