Detroit Tiger Andy Dirks in West Michigan This Weekend for Injury Rehab Assignment
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.
