Casey Crosby optioned to Triple-A Toledo

Tigers eager for Crosby show
by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com (2/9/2013) Detroit pitching coach Jeff Jones pinpointed the problem with Casey Crosby almost immediately. Crosby, a hulking left-hander at 6-foot-5, was becoming too particular with his pitches instead of trying to overpower hitters. That cautious approach resulted in a woeful 9.49 ERA over three starts with the Tigers last June and a ticket back to the minors for the rest of the season. "It's not that he pitched tentatively, but that he was concerned so much in throwing strikes," Jones told the Detroit News on Saturday. "A guy with his fastball and breaking ball just has to be aggressive. ... He's getting older and more experienced. We expect him to have a good season. And a good spring training."
