News
What Tigers veteran closer Joe Nathan described as a "dead arm period" is over, he told MLB.com after shutting down Cleveland for a save Thursday afternoon.

"Today was more how I felt, being able to finish," he said after retiring the Indians in order in the ninth. "My velocity is what it's going to be, but moreso I was locating where I wanted to. But it did feel like it was a lot livelier. There's different 91s, different 92s, but today, at least finishing pitches, it felt like it was jumping out of my hand better."

Nathan had yielded five earned runs, seven hits and four walks in his previous 3 1/3 innings covering four appearances.

News
Tigers reliever Al Alburquerque has opened the season without issuing a walk in seven straight appearances, which is the longest stretch of his career without issuing a walk.

"He's throwing strikes. He's probably been our most consistent guy out of the 'pen right now," manager Brad Ausmus said, per MLB.com. "For a lot of the statistics over 11 games, I'm not ready to jump on any bandwagon. It's just too early. I hope he continues to throw the way he's throwing, and I hope he doesn't walk a guy all season. I hope he extends his streak, but 11 games in, jumping on any statistical bandwagon can be a little bit misguided. It's not really enough of a sample."
