Detroit Tigers lose SP Joey Wentz to injury

There cannot be a team in baseball that has been as unlucky as the Detroit Tigers, especially when it comes to injuries to starting pitchers.

On Tuesday night, Joey Wentz was making his second career start with the Tigers and he was absolutely cruising before he was taken out of the game after he was looked at by the trainer, Doug Teter.

Prior to being removed from the game, Wentz was rolling as he had given up just one hit while striking out four over four innings of work.

Wentz was replaced by Wily Peralta, who escaped the fifth inning, despite giving up a pair of walks.

Just moments ago, the Tigers announced that Wentz left the game with a left shoulder strain.

At this point, it seems like the Detroit Tigers starting pitchers are cursed.

As it stands, Casey Mize, Eduardo Rodriguez, Matt Manning, and Michael Pineda are on the injured list and time will tell if Wentz joins them.

If Wentz has to miss his next start, it will be interesting to see who the Tigers decide to call up to take his place.

On the bright side, the Tigers currently lead the Minnesota Twins 4-0 in the sixth inning.
