Alburquerque goes on DL with elbow woes
Tigers rookie setup reliever has 47 strikeouts in 29 innings
By Jason Beck / MLB.com | 07/01/11 12:25 PM ET

DETROIT -- The Tigers have received a huge boost to their bullpen from Al Alburquerque and his nasty slider, but they've been aware of his injury history, especially with his elbow. That history has repeated itself yet again.

The Tigers placed Alburquerque on the 15-day disabled list Friday with right forearm flexor mass inflammation. The loss is expected to be a short one, and Alburquerque is expected to return after the All-Star break. Still, the move puts a hold on what has been a dominant rookie season for the 25-year-old right-hander with a tremendous out pitch and a power fastball to boot.

Detroit called up right-hander Lester Oliveros to take Alburquerque's place on the 25-man roster. Oliveros was told of the promotion Thursday evening, according to the Toledo Blade. However, it'll be up to Ryan Perry and others to fill the void in the seventh inning created by Alburquerque's absence, however long it lasts.

Alburquerque complained of elbow discomfort two weeks ago, mainly when he threw sliders, but both he and head athletic trainer Kevin Rand said Wednesday afternoon that he was fine. A treatment and exercise program supposedly had taken care of it. Manager Jim Leyland had been giving Alburquerque multiple days of rest recently. That was before he threw a season-high 42 pitches over 1 1/3 innings Wednesday night in a 16-9 loss to the Mets.

Leyland said after that game that he pitched Alburquerque, among others, with the belief that the Tigers could come back and win if they could hold their deficit at two runs. However, Alburquerque walked three batters and gave up three hits en route to giving up three runs, ending a 14-inning scoreless streak. Just 20 of his pitches were for strikes, and he struck out only one batter. However, he went to the slider time and again.

The original expectation was that Alburquerque would miss at least a few days. Once his elbow problems resurfaced, however, he was taken for tests, which showed no structural damage.

His numbers reflect the void the Tigers face. In 26 games, Alburquerque has allowed 15 hits over 29 innings with 22 walks and 47 strikeouts. His strikeout pace, hovering around 40 percent of the batters he faced, was on track to challenge Eric Gagne's Major League standard set in 2003, and he has allowed only one hit for extra bases all year.

The Tigers signed Alburquerque to a Major League contract last winter after he pitched in just 25 games for Rockies' Double-A affiliate in Tulsa due to elbow discomfort. The way he pitched in winter ball in his native Dominican Republic showed what he can do when he's healthy.

He backed that up from the start of the regular season, which he spent at Triple-A Toledo before coming up in late April. After striking out eight batters over four scoreless innings and three appearances for the Mud Hens, the Tigers promoted him in mid-April.

After some early command inconsistency, Alburquerque caught fire, becoming a seventh-inning fixture. When Perry returned from a stint with Toledo last week, he became more of a long reliever, a role that will almost surely change now.

Oliveros made an impression on Tigers coaches in Spring Training, but his results have been mixed. After a dominant start at Double-A Erie with 16 innings of one-run ball and 27 strikeouts, the 23-year-old Venezuelan is 1-2 with a 4.37 ERA in 17 games for Toledo, allowing 22 hits over 22 2/3 innings with 13 walks and 22 strikeouts.

If Alburquerque is out for a longer stretch, another potential second-half option might loom at Toledo, where Erie closer Chance Ruffin will take Oliveros' spot. Ruffin, a supplemental-round Draft pick last year, went 3-3 with a 2.12 ERA and 10 saves for Erie, striking out 43 batters over 34 innings with 23 hits allowed. He tossed 10 2/3 scoreless innings on five hits with 11 strikeouts over his last 10 appearances for the SeaWolves.

Tigers promote Ruffin to Majors
By Joe Kieser / Special to MLB.com | 07/24/11 8:55 PM ET

MINNEAPOLIS -- After Sunday's 5-2 victory over the Twins, the Tigers announced they are promoting right-handed pitcher Chance Ruffin to the big club and will send Lester Oliveros to Triple-A Toledo.

Ruffin posted a combined 3-3 record with a 2.09 ERA in 31 games with Double-A Erie and eight games with Triple-A Toledo.

Tigers Manager Jim Leyland said he knew little about his new reliever, who will be joining the team for its next series in Chicago.

"I know nothing about him," Leyland said, "other than he's tough, he's good and he's from Texas."

The 6-foot, 185-pound right-hander is just 22 years old. He was drafted in the supplemental first round (48th overall) of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft.

Ruffin is the son of former Major League pitcher Bruce Ruffin, who pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies, Milwaukee Brewers and Colorado Rockies from 1986-1997.

Oliveros pitched in nine games for the Tigers this season, posting a 0-0 record with an ERA of 5.63 in eight innings of work.
