Mikie Mahtook went 1-for-3 with a home run and four RBI in Saturday's 7-5 win over the Twins.
Advice: He drove in a run the hard way in the third inning -- by getting drilled by a pitch with the bases loaded. He got his revenge in the fifth inning by blasting a three-run bomb that plated Niko Goodrum and Victor Martinez. It's been a dismal season for Mahtook despite tonight's heroics -- he has a .189/.257/.287 line with two homers and 12 RBI in 36 games.
Mikie Mahtook hit his first home run of the season in Thursday's lopsided loss to the Twins.
Advice: Mahtook was just recalled on Monday to take the roster spot of JaCoby Jones, and he got on the board with a two-run shot off Twins starter Ervin Santana in the fourth inning. It was his first homer in 34 games this year. Hits of any variety have been hard to come by for the 28-year-old this year, who's batting just .190/.244/.267 overall.
Tigers recalled OF Mikie Mahtook from Triple-A Toledo.
Advice: He'll replace the injured JaCoby Jones (hamstring) on the active roster and could see a decent amount of playing time in the Tigers' outfield. The 28-year-old has hit just .200/.239/.257 in 113 plate appearances with the big club this season.
