Michael Pineda (shoulder) experienced discomfort throwing Friday and will be shut down for awhile.
As recently as Tuesday, Pineda was making positive progression, but that has been halted. His comeback season took a turn for the worse after being busted using pine tar and immediately following that, he experienced soreness in his shoulder. Expect Pineda to be out for at least another month at a minimum.ANALYST: David Kerr
Joakim Soria will throw a bullpen session Thursday.
Soria was acquired last season by the Tigers as an insurance policy for the struggling Joe Nathan but he found himself getting injured just six games after being acquired which forced him to miss more than a month. In 13 games with the Tigers last season Soria went 1-1 with a 4.91 ERA after posting a 2.70 ERA with the Rangers prior to the trade. The Tigers expect Nathan to be their closer heading into the season which will mean Soria will once again be in a set up role. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
