He was 2-2 with a save and a 3.15 ERA notching 41 strikeouts in 28 appearances for Toledo.
At the big-league level, he appeared in seven games for the Tigers, and notched a 0-2 record, surrendering 10 runs in 4 1/3 innings.
Overall in his Major League career, he is 4-8 with a 4.56 ERA in 73 games for the Tigers, striking out 86 in 75 innings of work.
Haeger has posted a 3-3 record for the Pawsox this season, striking out 40 batters and walking 31 in 51 innings pitched, posting a 5.29 ERA in the process. He has also spent time with the Portland Sea Dogs this year, posting a 4-4 record and a 3.99 ERA in 70 innings of work with the team.
