The Tigers have designated Ian Krol for assignment in order to make room for Jose Urena, who will come off the injured list on Saturday, per Evan Woodbery of MLive Media Group.

In 12 appearances, Krol has a 5.11 ERA/3.82 FIP covering 12 1/3 innings. Urena has been out since July 17 with a groin strain. The veteran right-hander posted a mostly unimpressive 80 innings of 6.19 ERA baseball through 17 starts. Nevertheless, Urena is scheduled to reclaim his spot in the rotation on Saturday.

Matthew Boyd is also returning to the Tigers this weekend to start Sunday’s game. Another roster move will be required to bring him onto the roster. Boyd hasn’t pitched since June 15, but he’s a big piece of their rotation moving into next season.
