Tigers pitcher Joe Nathan throws bullpen Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Tigers pitcher Joe Nathan was able to throw a 15-pitch bullpen session Saturday for the first time since landing on the disabled-list, reports MLive.com.

"I planned on just long tossing, but I felt awesome," Nathan said. "(Pitching coach Jeff Jones) might had a plan but I didn't know about it. But I said, 'Let's do it.'"

Nathan, who has been on the DL with a right elbow flexor strain since April 7, is eligible to be activated Wednesday. He is expected to throw a full bullpen session Monday.

"I'm eligible, but I don't want to speculate on what we're going to do." he said. "I assume they would want me to get some game action to make sure (I'm ready)."

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus to 'be careful' with Victor Martinez
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus knows there is a long season ahead. That's why the skipper wants to "be careful" with designated hitter Victor Martinez and his knee injury, reports MLive.com.

"It's the knee on the load-side of his body when he's hitting left-handed," Ausmus said. "Right-handed, it's not (a problem). It doesn't bother him as much."

Martinez is only two months removed from undergoing surgery on his knee.

"I think he can face right-handed pitchers," Ausmus said. "But it's something we want to keep an eye on."

Tigers relievers see action Saturday in blowout loss
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Tigers relief pitchers Joba Chamberlain and Tom Gorzelanny were able to get some extra work in Saturday against the White Sox in the 12-3 loss.

Both worked a scoreless inning, with Gorzelanny recording two strikeouts in his appearance.

"The thing is we've had one guy pitch however many days, which is great," said Gorzelanny to MLive.com. "I'm happy with that -- it means our starters are going deep and we're winning ballgames. I think everyone would like to get in there just to not only get work in, but save the rest of the guys.

"You want to get guys throw a few innings and save the rest of the bullpen. When they call and say we need to get you in there, I just try to do my job and get out of there as quick as possible."

Manager Brad Ausmus chalked it up to the ebbs and flows of how the starting pitchers do.

"It's tough to stay sharp when you've got starters going eight innings," Ausmus said. "As a reliever, you don't get a chance to get into a game situation. I don't read too much into what happened today."

Tigers' Anibal Sanchez hammered for nine runs in loss on Saturday
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez (1-2) was smacked around for nine earned runs in 3 1/3 innings on Saturday and suffered the loss against the White Sox.

"I don't know. I'm not going to pitch and not try to allow homers," Sanchez said to MLB.com. "I just try to execute a pitch and help the team win. I'm not going out there trying to give up homers. I didn't last year. I just try to keep working hard this year. I don't know what's going on right now, but I need to figure it out."

The major blow was a Jose Abreu grand slam that highlighted a seven-run fourth inning for the White Sox.

"The ball's up again," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "Same thing in Pittsburgh. He has the ability to pitch up at times, but there's that fine line between pitching above the batter's bat and pitching at the batter's bat. If it's a tick higher, he probably gets the popups like he did earlier in the game."

Sanchez will look to get back on track Thursday against the Yankees.
