David Lee had minor surgery to repair a core muscle (pelvic area) and won't be able to train with Team USA in Las Vegas.
Again, the procedure was deemed minor, so while it will take Lee out of the running for a spot on Team USA in the FIBA World Cup in Spain, he should be just fine for training camp.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.
