Wilmington’s Jeff Ferrell back in the show with the Detroit Tigers


DETROIT (WWAY) — Jeff Ferrell made his Major League Baseball debut on July 4 for the Detroit Tigers. He allowed three runs on four hits in two innings for the two games he pitched for Detroit. The Laney High grad stayed on the MLB roster for a few weeks, but he was sent down to the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens in late July. The Detroit Tigers promoted the Wilmington native early Friday morning to their active roster. Ferrell will join the MLB club in time for their series opener tonight against the Cleveland Indians.

Jeff Ferrell is 0-1 with a 4.76 ERA in 11 appearances at the Triple-A level Toledo Mud Hens.
