Maroth Back in Rotation, Miner Goes to Pen

Mike Maroth has finished rehabilitation of his right elbow and is going back into the rotation. He will start against the Yankees next Wednesday. Zach Miner, who performed about as well as could be expected during Maroth's absence will join the bullpen. In fact, he already pitched 2 1/3 innings of scoreless ball after replacing Justin Verlander in today's loss. Miner threw 79 innings in 15 starts compiling a 4.76 ERA and a 46/26 k/BB ratio. After getting off to a good start, he has struggled as of late so this is probably a good time for Maroth to return. Hopefully, Maroth is fully ready because the Yankees will cetainly be a tough test.
