Scott SizemoreThe ice-cold Detroit Tigers are hoping for a shot of energy from red-hot second baseman Scott Sizemore, calling him up from Triple-A and sending down Will Rhymes after Monday's loss to the Yankees.

Sizemore was pulled from the lineup for Monday's game for Toledo in anticipation of this move. He entered the game hitting .408/.495/.605 with two homers in 92 plate appearances.

Sizemore played in 48 games last season for the Tigers, hitting .224/.296/.336 with three homers in 163 plate appearances.

Rhymes was hitting .221/.321/.235 in 81 plate appearances this season.

Detroit has lost seven straight games, its longest losing streak of the season.

Step up!

Tigers have to get someone to step up.  We have two guys on the top of the AL strike out list in Jackson and Rayburn.  Looking at yesterday and the recent changes, Boesch just can't handle the 5 spot and should be moved.  I wonder if Avila could since he is so hot right now?  Maybe worth a try tonight until Martinez comes back.
I am left asking too many questions during this losing streak.  We are better than this!  Step up Tigers!

Tigers hope Sizemore provides spark

Good for the Tigers, they have to try something. Might as well go for the numbers and percentages. It's early in the season and the trip from here in Toledo to Detroit is a short one. There are a lot of Hens hitting the daylights out of the ball right now in Toledo. A little competion mixed with some envy is a real good motivation. Will just isn't hitting, like you said Sizemore at .400+. Bring him up and try it. Right now nothing to loose, accept maybe Tigers 8th straight....OUCH!
