After an unremarkable performance in the doubleheader game on Thursday, Detroit Tigers left-hander Zach Logue was optioned to Triple-A Toledo. Logue had stepped in after starting pitcher Michael Lorenzen exited the game, pitching four innings during which he managed to strike out five batters, but not without conceding three runs, including two solo home runs to Taylor Ward.
Detroit Tigers send Zach Logue back to Triple-A
This is the second time this year that Logue has been with the Tigers, but his stint lasted a mere three days. During his previous stay with the big-league team earlier in the month, he appeared in two games and allowed six runs in seven innings. His performance at Toledo has been a bit shaky as well, with a record of 2-7 and an ERA of 6.29 over 58 2/3 innings.

Bottom Line – A Chance for Improvement
Zach Logue's reassignment to Triple-A Toledo, while a setback, presents an opportunity for him to hone his skills and strive for improvement. It's a reminder of the highly competitive nature of Major League Baseball, and the constant evolution required to maintain a position. For Logue, the task ahead is clear: it's time to step up his game in the hopes of a more successful return to the big league. If Logue is able to go down to Triple-A and improve on some things, there is a solid chance that he gets another opportunity with the Tigers before the season is over.
