Tigers bring back Ryan Raburn
DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers have reinstated outfielder Ryan Raburn from the disabled list and purchased the contract of utilityman Don Kelly from Triple-A Toledo.
Detroit announced the moves before Saturday night's game against the Chicago White Sox. Raburn had been out since Aug. 1 with a sprained right thumb. Kelly was designated for assignment Aug. 3 but now returns to the Tigers.
Reliever Al Alburquerque also will be back soon. The team says it will recall him from Toledo before Sunday night's game against Chicago. The right-hander hasn't pitched in the majors since undergoing offseason surgery on his throwing elbow.
Detroit also recalled right-hander Luis Marte, catcher Bryan Holaday and infielder Danny Worth from Toledo on Saturday.
