Optioned RHP Jose Ortega to Triple-A Toledo. [6/9]

Purchased the contract of LHP Jose Alvarez from Triple-A Toledo. [6/9]

Transferred RHP Octavio Dotel to the 60-day disabled list. [6/9]

Sunday's start was supposed to go to Anibal Sanchez, but shoulder stiffness foiled those plans. Instead the Tigers turned to Alvarez, a small southpaw with his fourth organization. Originally a member of the Red Sox, Alvarez was sent to the Marlins in the Jeremy Hermida trade, with whom he spent three seasons. Miami released him after 200 poor innings in Double-A, and he latched on with Detroit this winter. He's since thrown some of his best ball, including his big-league debut, where he carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning. Although Alvarez is unlikely to start long-term, he's shown enough savvy and control to project as a reliever.
