According to Chris McCosky of the Detroit News, Tigers’ manager Ron Gardenhire would not say who, but a pitcher will be called up from Toledo to start on Saturday.

McCosky also added that “another pitcher or two” will be called up to work the double-header against the White Sox on Wednesday and that one of the Tigers’ top pitching prospects, Beau Burrows, could get the call.

So far in eight starts in the minor leagues this season, Burrows is 1-2 with a 3.35 ERA while allowing opposing batters to a .199 average.

According to the MLB Pipeline rankings, Burrows is currently the No. 4 rated pitcher in the Tigers’ organization.
