|Octavio Dotel begins throwing|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/21/13) Tigers reliever Octavio Dotel, on the 15-day disabled list with an inflamed right elbow, resumed throwing and will require a rehab assignment, according to MLB.com.
Dotel was shut down roughly a week ago after experiencing more discomfort while throwing. Dotel will need to make more progress before starting a rehab assignment. The Tigers have not issued a concrete timetable for Dotel's return.

(5/15/13) Tigers reliever Octavio Dotel isn't expected to return from an inflamed right elbow anytime soon, MLive.com reports.
Dotel has been on the disabled list since April 23. A visit to Dr. James Andrews earlier in May did not reveal any structural damage, but Dotel has hardly progressed. "It's going to be a while before we see Dotel here, I think," manager Jim Leyland said.
There is no firm timetable for Dotel's return.

(5/11/13) Tigers reliever Octavio Dotel visited Dr. James Andrews to get a second opinion on his injured right elbow, MLB.com reported Saturday.
Dotel still is not feeling right in his right elbow, though Dr. Andrews found no structural damage. Dotel is expected to rest for six days before resuming a throwing program. He's still out indefinitely.
|Octavio Dotel won't return from disabled list Sunday|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/3/13) Tigers relief pitcher Octavio Dotel is eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list, but he won't be ready to be activated at that time, MLive.com reports.
"Dotel was feeling pretty good," manager Jim Leyland said in the report. "The next step would be throw some and then go out to rehab. But exactly what day that would happen, I can't swear to that."
Dotel has allowd seven earned runs in 4 2/3 innings this season.
|Octavio Dotel still not throwing|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(4/28/13) Tigers reliever Octavio Dotel, on the 15-day disabled list, won't resume throwing until the swelling in his right elbow goes down. He has been receiving treatment for inflammation since coming down with the injury last week, MLB.com reports.
Dotel will likely require a minor-league rehab assignment before being activated from the DL.
|The much-traveled Octavio Dotel is settling in for a second season in Detroit. After playing for five different teams over the previous two seasons, Dotel spent all of 2012 in the Tigers' bullpen and he is about to embark on the second half of his two-year deal. Though it's not reflected in his 3.57 ERA, Dotel did a lot of things extremely well in 2012. For the 12th time in his 14-year career, Dotel struck out more than a batter per inning, but he also achieved the best walk and ground ball rates of his career. The 39-year-old is a long shot at best to be the Tigers' closer, but he is a good reliever to target in leagues that use setup and middle men, given his track record of success, particularly in providing strikeouts and holds.
