Tigers place Jurrjens on DL, recall Miner
The right-handed Jurrjens (1-1) faced six batters in 1 1/3 innings Sunday and left after giving up Jason Giambi's solo homer in the second. The first Curacao native to pitch in the majors, Jurrjens was making his third career start.
Four relievers came on to help the Tigers hold on to a 5-4 victory over the Yankees.
Jurrjens had a 3.60 ERA in three starts.
Miner is 2-3 with a 3.86 ERA in 24 appearances this season.
