|Tigers like Bruce Rondon as setup man |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(12/5/13) The Tigers have a new closer in right-hander Joe Nathan, but general manager Dave Dombrowski thinks they already have their setup man in 22-year-old Bruce Rondon, according to MLive.com.
"The person we're hoping to really step up for us once again -- and we really think he's capable of doing it -- is Bruce Rondon," Dombrowski said. "He's healthy. Feeling good. We look at him as a potential eighth-inning guy, and the rest of the bullpen will fall into place after that."
Rondon, who missed the entire postseason with a flexor strain in his right elbow, was a candidate to close at the beginning of last season, but because of control issues, he spent much of the first half in the minors. He had a 2.73 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 9.9 strikeouts per nine innings in 27 appearances after coming up for good in late June.

(10/13/13) For the first time since being sent to instructional league earlier this month, Tigers reliever Bruce Rondon (elbow) played catch, throwing from a distance of approximately 90 feet Saturday, according to MLB.com.
Rondon is not expected to appear in the American League Championship Series against the Red Sox, and it is likely he would also be unavailable for the World Series, should the Tigers win the ALCS.

(10/12/13) Tigers manager Jim Leyland told MLive.com Saturday that reliever Bruce Rondon will likely miss the American League Championship Series against the Red Sox because of a right elbow injury. Rondon has not pitched in a game since Sept. 24 against the Twins.
"I don't think we can expect him," Leyland said. "I don't think he's picked up a ball yet."
|Phil Coke, Bruce Rondon out for ALDS |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(10/1/13) The Tigers will not carry relievers Phil Coke or Bruce Rondon during the American League Division Series against Oakland, MLive.com reports. Tigers skipper Jim Leyland said both are dealing with discomfort in their respective arms.
"They're not going to be ready for the first round," Leyland said.
It is not clear at this time if one or both relievers could return should the Tigers advance to the American League Championship Series.
"I feel bad because I wanted to be able to help this team in the first round," Rondon said through a translator.
