Update: Tony Parker signed a three-year, $43.3 million contract extension with the Spurs.
Should Parker walk away form basketball at the ripe old age of 35, he'll be quite the wealthy man. As stated in previous reports, there is little reason to believe that Parker can't post numbers similar to last season's averages based on how he is used in Greg Popvich's system.ANALYST: Howard Bender
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
