Tigers' Joel Hanrahan unsure about his next step


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2015) Tigers reliever Joel Hanrahan isn't sure what's next after being shut down from throwing, according to Peter Gammons. 

Hanrahan had Tommy John surgery back in 2013, and did not pitch in the majors last season while he was recovering. He had trouble getting through a recent bullpen session, and was shut down by Detroit. 

The 33-year-old has a career 3.85 ERA over 404 2/3 innings. 


Tigers' Joel Hanrahan shut down for a few days


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Tigers pitcher Joel Hanrahan has been shut down for a few days after he struggled to get through a bullpen session, according to MLB.com.

Hanrahan could not finish a bullpen session on Saturday, but was slated to throw another on Monday. It's unclear whether he was able to participate in that session, however. Since then, the team has shut down Hanrahan for the time being. 

General manager Dave Dombrowski said the recent news won't change how they perceive Hanrahan this year. "Our situation with Joel has not changed at all," Dombrowski said. "I’ve always talked about being in a situation where we weren’t counting on him. We were hopeful. We would see what would happen. So that really hasn’t changed at all, because I really never said in my mind he’s going to be part of our bullpen."

The 33-year-old Hanrahan has thrown just 7 1/3 innings in the majors since 2013 due to Tommy John surgery. 


Tigers P Joel Hanrahan unable to throw full bullpen


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) Tigers pitcher Joel Hanrahan did not throw a complete bullpen session on Saturday, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Slated to throw the bullpen on Saturday, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Hanrahan told him "he didn’t feel his best today." Hanrahan is coming off of Tommy John surgery and was reported to be on schedule with his recovery earlier this week.

Hanrahan previously had a bullpen session scheduled for Monday as well.

In his career, Hanrahan has a 3.85 ERA in 404 2/3 innings.


Tigers' Joel Hanrahan on schedule, but not 100 percent


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) Tigers pitcher Joel Hanrahan is on schedule, but he's not 100 percent, according to mlive.com.

Hanrahan is attempting to come back from Tommy John surgery, and is expected to throw a bullpen session on Saturday. If that goes well, Hanrahan will toss another session on Monday. Manager Brad Ausmus said Hanrahan is on schedule, even if he's not totally healthy. "He's on the schedule right now," Ausmus said. "But I would characterize him at less than 100 percent at this point."

The 33-year-old Hanrahan owns a 3.85 ERA over 404 2/3 career innings.


Report: Tigers' Joel Hanrahan still feels elbow soreness


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Hanrahan has gone 20 months since the surgery and was testing the elbow in spring training. He's thrown a couple bullpen sessions, but he told Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press that he's feeling soreness in the arm. 

“It gets sore but as long as I can walk off the mound on my own then I’m happy at that point,” Hanrahan said.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski reiterated he has no timetable for the return of reliever Joel Hanrahan, who continues to work his way back from Tommy John surgery.

Hanrahan has been throwing bullpen sessions consistently over the last week.

"There's been some times when he first threw that he threw very well," Dombrowski said. "But the thing is, when you start getting ready for the big leagues, you're talking about pitching back-to-back days. You're talking about throwing all your pitches. Really, there have been no expectations. Really, he's made progress, but I can't also say that he's close."
