Ryan Perry Optioned to Toledo

According to Jason Beck via Twitter, the Tigers have optioned Ryan Perry to Toledo to make room for Jeremy Bonderman who will pitch the second game of tonight's doubleheader. There was some thought that the Tigers might send down a position player and go with 13 pitchers for the White Sox series. However, a solid performance by Armando Galarraga today (3 runs in 6 2/3 uinnings) probably saved the bullpen enough so that an extra pitcher will not be necessary.

Perry has been impressive at times and has an ERA of 3.13 and 22 strikeouts in 23 appearances. However, his control has been bad ( 19 walks) and he'll get a chance to work on that in the lower pressure environment of the minors.
