Tigers P Bruce Rondon goes 2/3 inning in rehab game


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Tigers pitcher Bruce Rondon threw 22 pitches in his first rehab start with Triple-A Toledo on Thursday night. 

Rondon went 2/3 of an inning and threw 14 strikes. He gave up one earned run on two hits while striking out one batter. The other out Rondon got came on a groundout. Rondon did reach 99 mph with his fastball, according to MLB.com

“He looked like he had good velocity,” Toledo Mud Hens manager Larry Parrish said. “He looked like he was healthy. As far as commandwise, he looked like he hadn’t been out there in a while.”

Rondon is currently on the 15-day disabled list with a biceps injury. 

Rondon's Toledo squad lost to Buffalo 9-5. 


Tigers pitcher Bruce Rondon to begin rehab assignment Thursday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Tigers relief pitcher Bruce Rondon is set to begin his rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Thursday, manager Brad Ausmus said on Tuesday per the Detroit Free Press.

Rondon, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a biceps injury, has thrown multiple bullpen sessions as a part of his rehab. He is yet to pitch in 2015 after posting a 1-2 record with a 3.45 ERA in 28 2/3 innings of work in 2013.


Tigers' Rondon, Verlander report no issues during Monday's session


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) Tigers pitchers Bruce Rondon and Justin Verlander conducted throwing sessions Monday and reported no problems, reports MLive.com.

Rondon is on the disabled list with bicipital tendinitis, but he was able to throw 25 pitches to live hitters Monday.

"He looked really good," manager Brad Ausmus said. "Again, with him, it's been the day after. We'll keep our fingers crossed that it has been the same as the recent track record where he's felt pretty good the next day. "We'll know more [Tuesday] but as far as the simulated, live BP, he looked strong, threw all of his pitches."

Meanwhile, Verlander has been sidelined for the entire season with a strain in his right triceps and he was able to throw a 45-pitch bullpen session Monday.

"Felt good, went through my long toss and then threw 45 off the mound," he said. "All really good effort. By far the most intense bullpen I've throw yet. It was all good. Again, wait until [Tuesday], see how it responds. If it's all good, move forward."

Verlander added that he will most likely throw one more bullpen session then pitch in a simulated game before beginning his rehab assignment.

"I fatigued a little bit [Monday], like normal fatigue," Verlander said. "But I haven't thrown that many pitches with that much effort in a long time in the bullpen. You throw 45 in a row with that much effort, you don't really practice for that."

Both pitchers have thrown previous bullpen sessions as part of their rehab.

Tigers' Bruce Rondon transferring rehab program to Detroit


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) The Tigers will transfer pitcher Bruce Rondon's rehab program to Detroit on Friday, but is not doing a lot better, according to the Detroit News.

Rondon, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a biceps injury, has thrown to hitters as recently as last week. The Tigers want to be able to monitor Rondon's progress in Detroit.

"I had hoped that he'd be through the program by now and be either pitching or out on a rehab assignment," head athletic trainer Kevin Rand said. "It hasn't happened yet. But it's just taking a little longer, that's all. And of course, we're going to be a little bit more cautious with him because of the history he's gone through.

"He had a UCL construction done last March, so he's still coming through that. He's had no issues with that, and we want to make sure that he doesn't have any issues with that, so we're taking a little bit more cautious approach with him. It's been a little bit slower process with him, mainly because he's still trying to protect that elbow."

Rondon hasn't thrown in the majors since 2013 when he posted a 3.45 ERA and 30 strikeouts in 28 2/3 innings of work.
