by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) The spate of injuries suffered by the Tigers has continued with the report that right-handed reliever Bruce Rondon is destined for Tommy John surgery, according to USA Today.

Rondon was seeking the setup role behind closer Joe Nathan after failing in his attempt to land the closer job last spring. The 23 year old who approaches 100 mph on his fastball was still considered a prime prospect, but he is now out for the season.

He pitched 30 games for Detroit a year ago and compiled a 3.45 ERA with 30 strikeouts in 28 2/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2014) Tigers pitcher Bruce Rondon was scratched from his scheduled appearance Friday due to a "non-throwing related back tweak" and will instead pitch Saturday, MLive.com reports.

"We just pushed him back to be safe with it," manager Brad Ausmus said Friday. "I talked to him today and he said he feels fine. It didn't really bother him to throw anyway. It was just kind of a precaution."

Rondon has allowed one earned run in three innings over three appearances this spring, striking out four and walking none.

Bruce Rondon, Joba Chamberlain in running for setup job


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/22/2014) The Tigers have been set at closer since signing Joe Nathan. But their setup situation has yet to be resolved. Newly acquired Joba Chamberlain and 2013 disappointment Bruce Rondon are battling for that spot.

"Right now, [they] are probably the two guys in my mind who you think about as eighth-inning guys for the team," Brad Ausmus told MLive.com on Saturday. "Performances will determine who actually ends up being the eighth-inning guy. That being said, it could change once you move into the season. ... Even if I know coming out of spring training who that is it doesn't mean it's going to stay."

Bruce Rondon's role to be determined in spring


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(12/15/2013) The Detroit Free Press reports that Tigers manager Brad Ausmus wants to wait until spring training to determine whether Bruce Rondon will be his setup man for closer Joe Nathan. Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski told reporters earlier this month that he hopes Rondon can step into the setup role.

Ausmus told the Free Press, "I have not laid eyes on Bruce Rondon. I like people in the pen knowing where they slot in. I wouldn’t make that final decision without seeing Bruce throw."

Rondon is working his way back from an elbow injury, and he has started playing catch. Dombrowski expects that Rondon will be ready for spring training.


Tigers like Bruce Rondon as setup man


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/5/2013) 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.
