Aroldis Champan took the loss Friday versus the Blue Jays after allowing four runs on two hits, including a home run, and two walks with one strikeout in just two-thirds of an inning of work.
Champan's consecutive streak of 13 scoreless innings came to end Friday night as he tied a career-high with four runs allowed in an appearance. Chapman fell to 0-2 on the season and saw his ERA go from 0.98 to 2.84.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
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
