• The Tigers agreed to terms with 22nd-round Draft pick Daryl Norris, a right-handed pitcher from Mississippi State. He became the 31st of 41 Tigers Draft picks to sign.
• While Matt Tuiasosopo began a Minor League rehab assignment Wednesday at Toledo, batting cleanup in the Mud Hens' order, Leyland said they'll ideally get the right-handed hitting role player back Friday when he's eligible to return from the 15-day disabled list. However, Leyland said they also gave Tuiasosopo the option of staying with the Hens this weekend if he felt he needed more at-bats.
• Leyland gave every indication that Avisail Garcia will return to Toledo when Tuiasosopo is ready to come off the disabled list.
"To be honest with you, the sooner he gets down there, the better for him," said Leyland, who has said more than once that Garcia needs everyday playing time to develop.
