Detroit Tigers recall Dixon Machado from Toledo

Prior to this weekend’s series against the Baltimore Orioles, the Detroit Tigers have recalled infielder Dixon Machado from Toledo. The move was made to replace infielder Marc Krauss who was placed on the paternity list.

According to Tigers beat writer Jason Beck, Krauss will join his wife in Deschler, Ohio, for the birth of their second child.

Machado has played well so far for the Mud Hens, batting .272 with four home runs and 36 RBIs.
