Brad Ausmus sets Tigers bullpen roles for 2015, Nathan to close
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus announced his tentative plans for his bullpen this season, according to mlive.com.

Ausmus said that, in an ideal world, Bruce Rondon would be used in the seventh inning, Joakim Soria would pitch in the eighth and Joe Nathan would close games out. Rondon is a bit of a question mark, as he's coming off March Tommy John Surgery. He's expected to be fully healthy by spring training, but the team will move him along slowly at first.

After a midseason trade brought him to Detroit, Soria was actually a better pitcher than Nathan. Despite that, Nathan managed to hold onto the closer role.

That appears to be the case again heading into 2015. Nathan posted a 4.81 ERA over 58 innings last season. It was his highest ERA since 2011. Nathan still managed to save 35 games with the club.

Tigers' Bruce Rondon, Jose Iglesias considered good to go
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Tigers reliever Bruce Rondon and shortstop Jose Iglesias are good to go, according to the Detroit News.

Rondon is recovering from March Tommy John surgery, but is nearing a return. Iglesias missed all of last season due to a shin issue. General manager Dave Dombrowski said that although both players were healthy, the team would take it easy with them early in spring training. 

Rondon posted a 3.45 ERA over 28 2/3 innings back in 2013. Iglesias hit .303/.349/.386 between Boston and Detroit.

Tigers aiming for 5-6 bullpens for Bruce Rondon before camp opens
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers trainer Kevin Rand said reliever Bruce Rondon, who missed the 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery, is long-tossing but has yet to throw off a mound, according to the Detroit Free Press. The Tigers are hoping Rondon will throw 5-6 bullpen sessions before spring training begins.

Tigers GM views Bruce Rondon as wild card for bullpen in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said he views reliever Bruce Rondon as a "wild card" in 2015, according to the New York Post.

Rondon was slated to be a setup man in 2014 before he missed the season due to Tommy John surgery. Dombrowski said Rondon was given a clean bill of health last week, and the expectation is he will be ready for spring training

Dombrowski envisions veteran Joe Nathan handling the closer's role in 2015. However, he added if Nathan doesn't return to form after a down year in 2014, then it's possible Joakim Soria could end up in the closer's role.
