by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

In the long term or even in the near term, you would think he's going to have some impact on the Detroit Tigers. But I think your questions are fair and they're certainly questions that we've discussed."

Rondon has yet to pitch a full season at the Major League level. This spring he has an ERA of 5.68, allowing 10 hits, two home runs while walking two batters.

Tigers bullpen all but set for opening day


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus is feeling confident about his pitching staff headed into the start of the season. So much so, that he's expecting six of the seven spots to already be taken by Joe Nathan, Joakim Soria, Bruce Rondon, Al Alburquerque and Joba Chamberlain, reports MLive.com.

"Those six, it'd be surprising if they weren't on the team," Ausmus said Friday morning. "Something strange would have to happen just based on their performances from the past."

This leaves Alex Wilson, Josh Zeid and Buck Farmer all battling for the final slot in the bullpen.

"You're always concerned about injuries," Ausmus said. "I think that's where the depth comes into play, where, if something unexpected comes up, we have a lot of arms we feel like can produce at the major league level. ... If something happens at any time, we feel that we have a quality arm that we can slide right in."


Tigers' Bruce Rondon steps it up in second bullpen session


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Tigers relief pitcher Bruce Rondon "took it easy" for most of his second bullpen session Monday before increasing his intensity with about 10 pitches remaining, MLB.com reports.

"He took it easy for the first half of the session, got a good feel for it," catcher Bryan Holaday said afterwards. "And then when he was comfortable, he let 'em rip, and the ball was coming out really good."

Rondon threw more hard pitches than he did in his first session Friday, and he plans to throw a few more in Thursday's session.

"He popped a few at the end. That's good," manager Brad Ausmus said. "I think as he gets more and more comfortable, he'll probably start popping a few earlier in the bullpen."

Rondon is in the final stages of his rehab from Tommy John surgery, and the team will build up his arm strength while trying to limit the risk of re-injury.

"You're not just building his arm strength," Ausmus said. "You're trying to build his arm strength and avoid a setback from surgery. And I don't know if there's any medical truth behind it, but I think the theory is, heat the elbow up, get it going and let him warm a little more and more. Let him get to the point of almost letting it go, and then finally you can let him go."

Rondon is just 11 months from undergoing surgery on his pitching elbow. He posted a 3.45 ERA and 30:11 K:BB ratio in 28 2/3 innings in 2013 before shutting it down with elbow issues.
