The Detroit Tigers have recalled infielders Zack Short and Kody Clemens from Triple-A Toledo and named right-hander Garrett Hill as the 27th man for Thursday’s doubleheader against the Oakland Athletics.

Additionally, the Tigers placed right-hander Will Vest on the paternity list, starting right-hander Beau Brieske on the 15-day injury list with right forearm soreness and reinstated right-hander José Cisnero from the bereavement list.

Detroit last week optioned first baseman Spencer Torkelson to Toledo.

At shortstop, Short has a career batting average of .141 with 22 hits, 20 RBIs and six home runs, all of which came in the 2021 season with the Tigers. Short has suited up for Toledo since March, where he hit .225 with nine homers, 37 RBIs and 51 runs in 85 games.

Clemens, a second baseman, has hit .161 with three home runs, eight RBIs and nine hits in 25 games since being drafted by Detroit in the third round of the 2018 draft. He was sent down to Triple-A on July 11.

Vest, who has a career 4.80 ERA and 64 strikeouts, was originally scheduled to go on paternity leave Sunday. Now, he’ll be able to spend three days away from the team.

Brieske’s move to the injury list is retroactive to Monday. He has a 4.19 ERA with 54 strikeouts in 15 starts. Cisnero has a 3.96 ERA with 182 strikeouts in 164 career games.
