ESPN has picked up the Tigers' June 10 game at Cincinnati for its Sunday Night Baseball package, which moves the game time from a 1:10 p.m. ET start at Great American Ballpark to an 8:09 p.m. start.
The Pirates called up former Tigers prospect Gorkys Hernandez from Triple-A Indianapolis prior to Friday's game. Hernandez was part of a group of young outfielder prospects in the Tigers system before the Tigers dealt him to Atlanta in the Edgar Renteria trade after the 2007 season.
The Tigers announced they've signed right-hander David Kopp to a minor-league contract. The former second-round pick of the St. Louis Cardinals spent five years in the Cards system, splitting last year between Double-A Springfield and Triple-A Memphis. He'll report to extended Spring Training.
