Detroit, MI (WKZO) – Octavio Dotel has been placed on the 15-day DL with right elbow inflammation and the Tigers have called up Bruce Rondon from Triple-A Toledo to take his spot on the roster.

Rondon was in contention during spring training to become the Tigers’ closer but was inconsistent with his command allowing 17 hits and nine walks in 12.1 innings. As a closer for the Mud Hens, Rondon has 7.2 shutout innings while giving up only five hits and two walks and striking out nine.

The Tigers have not had a set closer through the first three weeks of the season and according to Tigers Manager Jim Leyland, Rondon will not take over the closer role but he could get a shot to close out some games.
