Blue Jays look for sweep of Tigers

The Detroit Tigers' pitching staff has been decimated by injuries this season. Another injury struck this week, so they're bringing up a fresh arm from Triple-A Toledo to pitch the finale of a three-game series on Sunday.

Left-hander Tyler Alexander (0-0, 3.60 ERA) is expected to get the nod against the Toronto Blue Jays at Detroit's Comerica Park.

Alexander has won his last two minor-league starts. He's 4-9 with a 5.72 ERA in 17 minor league appearances this season. He was called up once this season, making a start earlier this month against the Chicago White Sox. He gave up two runs on five hits and struck out four in five innings.
