Armando Galarraga Back in the Big Leagues

The visit to the MLB roster by Casper Wells is going to be quite short-lived. 1 day. That is because ex-Tiger rotation mainstay, Galarraga is going to get a start Sunday. It has been a while.

Galarraga was a huge surprise back in 2008 when he broke into the Tigers rotation. he ended up Detroit's rookie pitcher of the year when going 13-7 with a 3.73 ERA in 2008. He then struggled mightily last year with zero control. after looking like a legit control pitcher in his first major stint after a
stretch mark cure. He has gone 4-2 with a 3.92 ERA for Triple-A Toledo this year, and appears to have pretty good control.

"He's done a pretty good job of that," Leyland said. "He's not been wild and seems to be pounding the strike zone pretty well."
