Tressler Making Remarkable Transition

Aaron Tressler was not supposed to be in this role. When the 24 year old right hander broke camp with the Lansing Lugnuts in April, it was to continue his development as a reliever. However, when an injury arose to A.J. Wideman, Tressler was asked to be the guy to step into a starter's role, something that he had not done since his college days at Penn State.

In 22 appearances this season, Tressler has an 8-4 record and has a team low ERA of 1.90.
