    • Tigers' Bruce Rondon: Optioned to Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rondon was optioned to Triple-A Toledo after struggling and taking the loss Sunday against the Twins, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Rondon couldn't find the strike zone on Sunday, as he walked two batters on a total of nine pitches. Both runners came around to score, which put the Tigers down 6-4 and bumped Rondon's ERA up to 10.91. Manager Brad Ausmus said Rondon's first few pitches were "alarming" and "weren't real close," so he wasted no time pulling the 26-year-old. Rondon has some talent, but clearly he needs to refine his control and grow as a pitcher. He'll try to do that at Triple-A and could rejoin the MLB club when rosters expand in September.

    • Tigers' Bruce Rondon: Sent to minors
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rondon was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following Sunday's loss to the Twins. Room on the roster is needed for Monday's starter, Michael Fulmer (elbow), and the struggling Rondon is the resulting roster casualty. He will head back to the minors for some more seasoning after allowing two runs without recording an out to earn the loss Sunday. While he has impressed with his overpowering stuff at times (12.1 K/9), he now owns an unsightly 10.91 ERA in 15.2 innings out of the Tigers bullpen.

    • Tigers' Bruce Rondon: Struggles, takes loss Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rondon (1-3) was tagged with the loss Sunday against the Twins. He didn't record an out and walked two batters on nine pitches. Both runners came around to score. Rondon simply couldn't find the strike zone in this one, and manager Brad Ausmus showed little patience in the right-hander. Rondon has displayed electric stuff at times, but he just hasn't been able to put it all together. With a 10.91 ERA, Rondon likely won't be getting too many high-leverage opportunities moving forward, and he's probably not worth owning in most standard leagues at this point.

    • Rondon pitched a scoreless inning, allowing one hit while striking out two, to earn his first save of the season Friday against the Orioles. Rondon was protecting a three-run lead and took advantage of his first save opportunity of the season. Since June 27, he has seven holds to go along with the save, and although his 10.93 ERA looks toxic, the sample size is small as he's only been on the mound for 15 innings this season.

    • Tigers' Bruce Rondon: Logs another hold
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rondon did not allow a baserunner and recorded two strikeouts in a clean eighth inning against the Giants on Thursday. He has logged five scoreless frames on two hits and two walks while striking out seven since rejoining the big-league bullpen on June 25. Justin Wilson is the undisputed closer in Detroit, but he could be dealt at the deadline, and Rondon is starting to put together an impressive recent resume that could make him a candidate to close if the ninth inning opens up at the end of the month.
