  • Symbol confirmed.svg Date, hook and source check out. Ready to go. Use the pic on the left if this is pictured. -SusanLesch (talk) 15:15, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
  • I don't really see how those facts are surprising. Isn't something a bit more unusual about him mentioned in the article?--Carabinieri (talk) 22:30, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
  • Well, he's making his major league debut for the Tigers on April 12, and he came within two outs of pitching a no-hitter in his first year of college play (as a "redshirt" freshman). Perhaps those two could be combined:
Technically, he isn't a Tiger until he's officially called up early next week. We want to avoid violating WP:CRYSTAL, but at the same time he's been announced as joining the starting pitching rotation of the club. If this DYK hook runs after he's been formally called up, the word "announced" can be deleted. BlueMoonset (talk) 18:18, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
Works for me. He's scheduled to debut for the Tigers' on the 12th I believe, so if this goes up after that there shouldn't be any CRYSTAL problems. Thanks for correcting my error on the page. – Muboshgu (talk) 18:24, 6 April 2012 (UTC)
