Former Erie SeaWolves outfielder Avisail Garcia is on his way to Detroit.
The Tigers placed Austin Jackson on the DL Monday with a bad hammy and recalled Garcia from Triple-A Toledo.
Garcia was hitting .432 with one homer and four RBIs in eight games for the Mud Hens.
Garcia hit .312 with six home runs and 22 RBIs for Erie last season. He played in 12 postseason games and had 23 at-bats with the Tigers in the playoffs last season.
