Coke in, Putkonen out for Tigers

BOSTON (AP) Detroit left-hander Phil Coke has been added to the roster for the AL championship series after missing the division series with elbow problems.

Coke gives the Tigers another option out of the bullpen, although he struggled this year, going 0-5 with a 5.40 ERA. Right-hander Luke Putkonen was left off the ALCS roster to make room for Coke.

Right-hander Bruce Rondon, who also missed the division series against Oakland with elbow trouble, is still out.

Detroit faces the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night in Game 1 of the ALCS.
