Urena (groin) will return to start Saturday's game against the Blue Jays but won't throw more than two or three innings, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

A groin issue has kept Urena sidelined since mid-July. He's been a starter all season but wasn't pitching deep into games prior to the injury, throwing no more than 4.2 innings in any of his last six starts. That may have been mostly due to performance rather than workload management, however, as he struggled to an 11.76 ERA over that stretch. Tyler Alexander is expected to follow him out of the bullpen Saturday.
