Tigers call up 9 from Mud Hens

DURHAM, N.C. - Nine Mud Hens, along with manager Bruce Fields, were promoted to the major leagues after the team's 4-2 loss to Durham yesterday.

Six pitchers - Jason Beverlin, Nate Cornejo, Eric Eckenstahler, Franklyn German, Shane Loux and Fernando Rodney - were called up by the parent Detroit Tigers along with catcher Mike Rivera, first baseman Eric Munson and shortstop Omar Infante.

“We didn't just call these guys up to sit - they'll get a chance to play,” said Dave Dombrowski, the Tigers' president and general manager.

Fields will serve as a coach.
