The Tigers announced on Monday evening that the club placed starter Jordan Zimmermann on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained neck on the right side. The move is retroactive to July 1. The Tigers recalled pitcher Dustin Molleken from Triple-A Toledo to take Zimmermann’s spot on the roster.
Zimmermann, 30, started the season off in strong fashion, exiting his May 11 start against the Nationals with a 1.50 ERA. In eight starts since, he compiled a 6.42 ERA, which may be explained in part to his neck injury.
Zimmermann is in the first year of a five-year, $110 million contract with the Tigers.
LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.
The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.
The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.
Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
