Glen Perkins earned his 14th save after throwing a perfect inning against the Padres on Wednesday. He had one strikeout.
Perkins has now logged saves in back-to-back games, and is now 14-for-16 in save chances in the early going. With a scheduled day off on Thursday, expect Perkins to be back in the fold if a save situation was to arise on Friday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
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.
