Tigers' Miguel Del Pozo: Gets Tommy John surgery
The Tigers announced Wednesday that Del Pozo recently underwent Tommy John surgery on his left elbow, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Del Pozo has compiled a 6.05 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 23:5 K:BB in 19.1 innings out of the Triple-A Toledo bullpen this season but hadn't pitched since May 19. He was moved to the 7-day injured list a day later due to the left elbow sprain and presumably had his surgery at some point over the past three weeks. Assuming Del Pozo faces the normal 12-to-14-month recovery timeline associated with Tommy John surgeries, he likely won't be ready to pitch in games until the second half of the 2024 campaign....

Tigers' Miguel Del Pozo: Opening year in minors
The Tigers reassigned Del Pozo to minor-league camp Monday, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Del Pozo was one of seven players the Tigers moved out of big-league camp Monday as Detroit looks to narrow down to 26 men with Opening Day a week and a half away. A veteran of 27 career MLB appearances, the 28-year-old Del Pozo ultimately fell short in his bid for a spot in the Tigers' season-opening bullpen despite allowing no runs and holding batters to a .136 average across 6.1 innings in Grapefruit League play....

Tigers' Miguel Del Pozo: Inks minor-league deal
Del Pozo signed a minor-league deal with the Tigers on Thursday.
Del Pozo spent the entirety of 2022 with the Tigers organization in Triple-A Toledo, where he put up a 3.88 ERA and 11.2 K/9 over 53.1 innings out of the bullpen. His last major-league appearance came in 2021 but considering his impressive Triple-A resume over the last two seasons (3.44 ERA, 1.07 WHIP), there's a case for Del Pozo to appear in the big leagues at some point in 2023....

Across his 34 relief outings in the minors, he posted a 2.82 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in 38.1 innings. While he won't make the Opening Day roster in 2022, it wouldn't be surprising to see the left-hander provide bullpen depth for the Tigers at some point.... See More ... See Less

Del Pozo (jaw/illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday.
Del Pozo sustained a jaw injury in late August and landed on the COVID-19 IL on Sept. 10 after he tested positive for the virus.

Tigers' Miguel Del Pozo: Placed on COVID IL
Del Pozo (jaw) was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Friday. Per Evan Woodbery of MLive.com, he tested positive for the virus and is symptomatic.
The positive test means he'll likely be required to quarantine for 10 days before returning to the club. The left-hander appeared to be close to returning from an 11-day absence after being hit by a line drive on the jaw Aug. 30, but his move to the COVID-IL means he won't return to the mound until the late stages of September....

Manager AJ Hinch said Del Pozo is still dealing with soreness in his jaw, but he was cleared of a concussion and should be ready to pitch again fairly soon.

Tigers' Miguel Del Pozo: Cleared of concussion
Del Pozo passed his initial concussion tests after being struck in the jaw by a line drive in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Twins, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
After being recalled from Triple-A Toledo prior to the contest, Del Pozo was summoned from the bullpen to begin the ninth inning. Just two pitches into his appearance, he took a liner from Max Kepler off the face, but he still recorded the out and appears to have escaped from the play with little more than a laceration on his chin that required stitches. Del Pozo can be viewed as day-to-day heading into the Tigers' three-game series with the Athletics that begins Tuesday.... See More ... See Less

Tigers' Miguel Del Pozo: Sent back to Toledo
Del Pozo was optioned back to Triple-A Toledo after serving as the club's 27th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins.
Del Pozo did not appear in either game of the twin bill and will now return to Toledo for the time being. While the right-hander has made three trips to the big leagues this season, he's appeared in just one game for Detroit, allowing two runs in two-thirds of an inning June 28. Del Pozo, who has a solid 2.78 ERA and 0.81 WHIP at Triple-A, figures to be a strong candidate to rejoin the Tigers' bullpen when the club becomes in need of another arm later this season....

Tigers' Miguel Del Pozo: Recalled to Detroit
Del Pozo was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Sunday.

This will mark Del Pozo's second stint in the big leagues this season, though he did not make an appearance during his two games with Detroit in mid-June. The lefty most recently pitched in the majors in 2020, blowing two saves while allowing seven earned runs across 3.2 innings for Pittsburgh. The reliever has posted a 1.02 ERA and 0.58 WHIP across 17.2 innings with Toledo this season.... See More ... See Less

The lefty has excelled in Toledo's bullpen this year, posting a 1.32 ERA and 17:3 K:BB in 13.2 innings. It remains to be seen whether Del Pozo's minor-league success can translate to the big-league level, as he pitched to a 10.61 ERA with the Angels in 2019 and a 17.18 ERA with the Pirates last year....
