recalled 22 year old infielder Hernan Perez from Double-A Erie. The Tigers had been hoping to avoid putting Infante on the list. The move is retroactive to July 4th and Infante will be eligible for activation after the All-Star break.
The injury occurred during the game against the Toronto Blue Jays a week ago Wednesday when Infante was hit hard by Toronto's Colby Rasmus, who was sliding into second base.
Tigers Manager Jim Leyland expects Infante to be better after the All-Star break. Infante is hitting .309 with six home runs and 27 RBIs in 76 games this season.
Perez made his major league debut last month, playing two games for the Tigers. His record is similar to Infante's, posting .300/.324//422 for Double-A Erie. He has 28 doubles and stolen 24 bases in 31 attempts this season.
