The plan calls for Tillman to throw off elevated ground sometime this weekend. Manager Buck Showalter recently said he doesn't expect the right-hander to rejoin the rotation until mid-September, at the earliest. Baltimore likely will continue with the cautious approach to his rehab.

Detroit tied the game at two against Sale in the eighth and then won it in walk-off fashion versus David Robertson in the ninth. Sale threw 72 of his 111 pitches for strikes and induced 14 swing-and-misses. This was the third straight start where he threw at least eight frames, but he won just one of those outings. He is 15-7 with a 3.10 ERA, 1.02 WHIP ad 185 strikeouts in 185.2 innings. Sale will face Detroit against Monday at home.
Dye (hamstring) was moved to the Buccaneers' injured reserve list Wednesday.
Dye suffered a hamstring injury during Tampa Bay's third preseason game and is expected to need a minimum of four weeks to recover. Capable as a receiver as well in the return game, Dye will likely have another opportunity to make the team ahead of the 2017 campaign.
Pujols has been playing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Although Pujols has been playing with a hurt foot, it hasn't seemed to influence his production at the plate. Over the last 14 games, Pujols is hitting .368/.367/.667 with five home runs and 14 RBI. The Angels have no intentions of putting Pujols on the disabled list, as they expect he'll be able to continue being their DH despite the ailment. However, it may be possible that he'll have more days off to avoid further aggravating the injury.
