Tigers reliever Joakim Soria was able to throw live batting practice on Tuesday, according to the Detroit Free Press

Soria wasn't listed on the team's pitching schedule for the first five spring games, which caused some confusion. While Soria said he's fine, manager Brad Ausmus said Soria is slightly behind the other pitchers in camp by his own choice. Soria did receive positive reviews during his session. "By all accounts, Soria threw very well," Ausmus said.

The 30-year-old Soria posted a 3.25 ERA over 44 1/3 innings last year.

Ankle - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 2/24/15)
News
Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera was able to take batting practice on the field on Monday, according to mlive.com.

It was the first time this spring Cabrera was able to take BP on the field. He also ran on the AlterG treadmill the club recently ordered and received. Manager Brad Ausmus said the team has been constantly checking in with Cabrera, and knew he would be able to get back on the field a couple of days ago. When asked about Cabrera's performance, Ausmus said, "he looked good."

Cabrera came into camp limited with an ankle injury. He's working his way back and hopes to be ready for opening day. The 31-year-old hit .313/.371/.524 over 611 at-bats last year.

News
Tigers pitcher Joe Nathan threw 21 pitches in his first appearance of the spring, pitching the fifth inning of Tuesday's 15-2 win over the Orioles.

Nathan's fastball topped out at 92 mph, and manager Brad Ausmus said after the game that it looked good, MLive.com reports.

"I thought the fastball looked good," Ausmus said. "I thought the slider was better out there when he faced hitters (earlier in camp), but I thought the fastball was good."

Nathan said that his fastball felt pretty good but that his breaking stuff moved too laterally and not enough downhill.

"That's pretty simple to feel and get back in," he said. "I could tell that right off the bat where I yanked a curveball during one of the at-bats. Overall, it felt good for the first one. Threw four-seamers, two seamers, some sliders -- some decent, some kind of backed up on me -- but overall good for the first one."

Knee - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 2/5/15)
News
Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez told reporters he remains on track to play on opening day, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Martinez, who is working his way back from a medial menisectomy in his left knee, revealed that he suffered the injury while playing catch in the street with his brother in February. He took 25 swings off a tee from each of the plate on Monday, and told reporters he would have taken 50 if the team trainer wasn't around.

The 36-year-old hit .335/.409/.565 over 561 at-bats last year.

Elbow - Out until at least mid-March (Updated - 3/2/15)
News
After visiting a specialist on Tuesday, reliever Joel Hanrahan will undergo a second Tommy John surgery, ending his stint with the Tigers. Detroit released him Wednesday, according to the Detroit Free Press. He will have surgery on his right elbow on March 18, per the team's official website.

Hanrahan never pitched in the majors since undergoing Tommy John surgery May of 2013, and signed a minor-league deal with Detroit before he was released. Now he will likely be out of commission until the early portion of the 2016. The 33-year-old registered a career 3.85 ERA over 404 2/3 innings.

Tigers starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez breezed through his two-inning outing Wednesday against the Orioles. Sanchez faced just seven batters in his spring debut, allowing a single to J.J. Hardy in the first inning and no walks.

He also struck out Delmon Young.

"They put a really good lineup out," Sanchez said, per MLB.com. "I don't want to pitch around those guys. They're smart. I know they're going to swing because they're working, too."

News
Tigers pitcher Blaine Hardy is using this spring training to work on his control. Hardy struggled in 2014 with his control, walking 20 batters in 39 innings pitched.

"Last year I walked more people than I would've liked," he said to MLB.com. "That's definitely a learning point, learning the strike zone. It's a little bit different, a little bit smaller, but more consistent. With that being said, I felt like I had a good year, and hopefully I'll be able to come in and do the same thing with less walks."

Manager Brad Ausmus didn't think Hardy's season was as bad as people believe it was.

"I thought he did a good job for us, quite frankly," Ausmus said. "It kind of irks me a little bit when people want to split players' seasons up: Player X had a good year, but he really struggled in the second half. He still had a good year.

"Guys are going to struggle at some point in the season. It's probably more likely they struggle in the second half as they tire, but you can't discount what they did in the first half. Those games are just as important to win."

News
Yoenis Cespedes made quite the impression in his first game in a Tigers uniform Tuesday. Cespedes, who was acquired in an offseason trade with the Red Sox, clubbed a grand slam in his spring debut, helping Detroit to a 15-2 win over Baltimore.

In his first at-bat, Cespedes popped out to first baseman Christian Walker in the first inning and then flied out to right field in his second at-bat. However, in his third at-bat he connected for a grand slam down the left-field line off Oliver Drake to put Detroit ahead 11-0.
