Tigers' Bruce Rondon to throw live batting practice on Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Tigers reliever Bruce Rondon will throw live batting practice on Friday, according to mlive.com.

Rondon is on schedule in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, according to manger Brad Ausmus. "His schedule was behind what the others were, so he's on schedule," Ausmus said. "We were going to take it slower with him regardless."

While he's on schedule, Rondon still has a lot of work to do. "First, he's got to get comfortable throwing to hitters," Ausmus said. "He's not quite there yet. Then, once we get him into games, we have to get him into back-to-back days. I would imagine that would be toward the end though."

The 24-year-old Rondon posted a 3.45 ERA over 28 2/3 innings in 2013.

Tigers bullpen all but set for opening day
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus is feeling confident about his pitching staff headed into the start of the season. So much so, that he's expecting six of the seven spots to already be taken by Joe Nathan, Joakim Soria, Bruce Rondon, Al Alburquerque and Joba Chamberlain, reports MLive.com.

"Those six, it'd be surprising if they weren't on the team," Ausmus said Friday morning. "Something strange would have to happen just based on their performances from the past."

This leaves Alex Wilson, Josh Zeid and Buck Farmer all battling for the final slot in the bullpen.

"You're always concerned about injuries," Ausmus said. "I think that's where the depth comes into play, where, if something unexpected comes up, we have a lot of arms we feel like can produce at the major league level. ... If something happens at any time, we feel that we have a quality arm that we can slide right in."

Tigers' Bruce Rondon steps it up in second bullpen session
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Tigers relief pitcher Bruce Rondon "took it easy" for most of his second bullpen session Monday before increasing his intensity with about 10 pitches remaining, MLB.com reports.

"He took it easy for the first half of the session, got a good feel for it," catcher Bryan Holaday said afterwards. "And then when he was comfortable, he let 'em rip, and the ball was coming out really good."

Rondon threw more hard pitches than he did in his first session Friday, and he plans to throw a few more in Thursday's session.

"He popped a few at the end. That's good," manager Brad Ausmus said. "I think as he gets more and more comfortable, he'll probably start popping a few earlier in the bullpen."

Rondon is in the final stages of his rehab from Tommy John surgery, and the team will build up his arm strength while trying to limit the risk of re-injury.

"You're not just building his arm strength," Ausmus said. "You're trying to build his arm strength and avoid a setback from surgery. And I don't know if there's any medical truth behind it, but I think the theory is, heat the elbow up, get it going and let him warm a little more and more. Let him get to the point of almost letting it go, and then finally you can let him go."

Rondon is just 11 months from undergoing surgery on his pitching elbow. He posted a 3.45 ERA and 30:11 K:BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings in 2013 before shutting it down with elbow issues.

Tigers will be cautious with Bruce Rondon
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Tigers will be cautious with reliever Bruce Rondon during camp, according to mlive.com.

Rondon has been able to throw bullpen sessions thus far, but the team will bring him along slowly. Rondon has been cleared to throw every other day, but he will receive an extra day off on Sunday just to be safe. 

"We're just going to take a little extra time and see how he feels," manager Brad Ausmus said. "A lot of it is going to be how he bounces the next day. We're handling him a little bit with kid gloves at this point."

The 24-year-old Rondon is working his way back from Tommy John surgery. He posted a 3.45 ERA over 28 2/3 innings with the club in 2013.

Tigers' Rondon: 'Everything's good' entering final stages of rehab
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Tigers reliever Bruce Rondon threw a bullpen session Tuesday at the team's spring complex in Florida, and is entering the final stages of his rehab from Tommy John surgery, per the Detroit Free Press.

Rondon threw 35 pitches Tuesday at about 50 percent. He said he will continue to ramp up intensity as spring camp progresses.

"I feel good. Really good," he said. "Everything's good, nothing in pain so it's pretty good."
