CHICAGO (AP) -The Detroit Tigers on Friday recalled left-hander Clay Rapada from Triple-A Toledo and designated right-hander Yorman Bazardo for assignment.
Bazardo appeared in three games with the Tigers - who were 1-8 before Friday's game against the White Sox - and gave up eight runs in three innings.
Rapada gives manager Jim Leyland another option out of the bullpen.
``They said he was the closest to helping us,'' Leyland said of Rapada, who relies on breaking balls and off-speed pitches.
``Different looks are good,'' Leyland said. ``He's still got to get people out. I hope we can use him against some righties.''
