A.J. Burnett (groin) says his bullpen session Sunday went better than expected. He's getting an ultrasound tomorrow to make sure it’s not anything hernia related.
The Phillies are hoping to avoid putting Burnett on the disabled list right now and they said they would wait until Monday before making the final decision. The fact that Burnett feels better is a positive but just because he says that's the case, doesn't mean it is. He'll go through a barrage of tests before being cleared to throw on Monday.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Tigers are in discussions with Jordan Zimmermann.
There is nothing definite to this point, but reports have surfaced that Jordan Zimmermann is in "serious" discussions with the Tigers. Zimmermann would form a nice one-two punch with Justin Verlander atop the rotation in Detroit. Zimmermann was 13-10 in 2015 with a 3.66 ERA and 164 strikeouts in 201 2/3 innings pitched.
