Bird shelved again
DETROIT -The Detroit Tigers revealed yesterday that ailing
pitcher Mark "The Bird" Fidrych, who has tendinitis, will be out
for at least the next two weeks.
The team announced Fidrych was placed on the 21-day
disabled list retroactive to July 20 because of the tendinitis in
his right arm.
Fidrych, last year's American League rookie of the year, will
be sidelined until at least Aug. 9.
Fidrych was 6-4 after starting the season late because of a
knee operation. Fidrych last pitched on Tuesday, July 12th, against
Toronto. He threw 15 pitches before leaving the game with pain
in his throwing arm.
To replace the Bird on the roster the Tigers purchased
the contract of right-handed pitcher Jack Morris from their
Evansville farm club yesterday.
Morris, a 6-foot-3, 195-pounder, is scheduled to join the team
today in time for the Tigers' game in Chicago.--AP
