• Andy Dirks was removed from his Minor League rehab start at Class A West Michigan during the fourth inning Tuesday after experiencing his left hamstring grab while chasing down a fly ball. He will be re-evaluated on Wednesday.
Dirks, who is recovering from back surgery and hasn't played in the big leagues this season, began this rehab assignment on Friday, and before this latest setback, the Tigers were hoping Dirks would be promoted to Triple-A later this week.
