Al Alburquerque picks up one-out save
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Tigers reliever Al Alburquerque recorded his first save of the season Wednesday against the Dodgers, and it came in a pretty easy situation.

Though Albuquerque was pitching with the go-ahead run on first, he needed to record just one out to close out the game, with Ian Krol handling the first two outs. He induced an easy groundout off the bat of Matt Kempt, earning the save with just four pitches thrown, in a 7-6 win in 10 innings.

Alburquerque has appeared in five games this season, allowing two runs on six hits in 3 1/3 innings of work. Wednesday was the first save of his career.

Tigers want Al Alburquerque to throw more fastballs
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers pitching coach Jeff Jones said reliever Al Alburquerque needs to start throwing more fastballs, according to the Detroit Free Press.

"Part of the problem is his slider is so good," Jones said in an interview with 97.1 The Ticket last week. "If you have a pitch nobody can hit, it’s difficult not to throw it every time the catcher puts the signal down."

According to FanGraphs.com, Alburquerque ranked among the lowest in the AL in throwing his fastball at 35.2 percent. He ranked second in the league among pitchers with at least 40 innings in throwing his slider, throwing it 64.8 percent of the time.

Jones said the Tigers spoke with Alburquerque last season about using his fastball more and will do so again this spring.

"Sometimes when guys have a pitch as good as his slider is, they don’t want to throw anything but it," he said. "Because they know the majority of the time the hitters aren’t going to hit it."

Al Alburquerque improved, but needs consistency
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers reliever Al Alburquerque fired two straight scoreless appearances Friday and Saturday after being recalled from Triple-A Toledo. Unfortunately, he issued three walks in two innings and manager Jim Leyland said consistency remains an issue for the right-handed reliever.

"The slider has been better ... the slider last night was OK," Leyland said Sunday, per the Detroit Free Press. "But it was a little bit of a different-looking slider at times, and at times it was real good. It’s just a matter of consistency. I think he’ll be fine."
