Former West Michigan Whitecap and current Detroit Tiger Andy Dirks will continue his injury rehabilitation assignment by joining the West Michigan Whitecaps for 6 games.

Dirks will be with the Whitecaps for their weekend series at Fifth Third Ballpark.

The Whitecaps report Dirks is also expected to be with the Whitecaps for a road series at Lake County next week.

This is the 16th time the Whitecaps have hosted a Detroit Tiger on a rehab assignment and the 3rd time this season.

Dirks had back surgery on March 10 and is still working to come back. A rehab assignment with Lakeland was cut short in early July due to inflammation of the back.

The Whitecaps host Fort Wayne for a 3-game series this weekend: Friday and Saturday at 7:00pm, Sunday at 1:00pm.
