MLB: Dotel on DL, Rondon up from minors for Tigers

Detroit • The Detroit Tigers have put reliever Octavio Dotel on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation, paving the way for Bruce Rondon to be called up from Triple-A Toledo.

Rondon was recalled Tuesday. He was in contention to be Detroit's closer during spring training but didn't make the team.

Dotel goes on the DL retroactive to Saturday.

Rondon has never pitched in the majors, but the right-hander was considered a possibility to replace Jose Valverde as Detroit's closer. But Rondon didn't make the major league team after a spring training audition, and Valverde is attempting a return of his own in the minors.

Dotel has allowed seven runs in 4 2-3 shaky innings for the Tigers this season.
