The Detroit Tigers have placed shortstop Alan Trammell on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to June 4 due to back spams. The Tigers called up infielder Mike Brumley from their Triple-A affiliate at Toledo, Ohio, to replace Trammell. In 20 games with the Tigers this season, Brumley hit .243 with no home runs and 2 RBIs. He batted .231 with 1 RBI in eight games with Toledo. Trammell was hitting .249 with two home runs and 10 RBIs in 173 at-bats.

It wasn't that long ago that Tiger Manager Sparky Anderson predicted that Kirk Gibson would be the second coming of Mickey Mantle. Gibson arrived, sort of, then went to the Dodgers. It was only last season that Anderson said Tiger catcher Matt Nokes was the best young catcher he'd ever had. Which prompts the musical question . . . Johnny Bench? And it was just this season that he looked at shortstop Alan Trammell and dubbed him the best player in the American League.

The Detroit Tigers hired former star shortstop Alan Trammell as manager Wednesday, hoping he can turn around a franchise that has endured nine consecutive losing seasons. Detroit was 55-106 last season--tying Tampa Bay for the worst record in the majors--and hasn't had a winning record since 1993, during the latter part of Trammell's stellar career as a shortstop in Detroit. "This is a day that I'm very proud of," Trammell said.

Alan Trammell had three pins inserted in the broken bone of his right ankle during an operation in Detroit. The Detroit shortstop, who broke the ankle Friday night during a game at Kansas City, is expected to be sidelined the next eight weeks. David J. Collon, the Tigers' orthopedic surgeon, said Trammell, who won't have to wear a cast, will be encouraged to stay in shape by doing exercises to strengthen his upper body.
