Michael Bourn (hamstring) will play in a rehab game for Double-A Akron on Tuesday.
Bourn has played in just 66 games this season and has been dissapointing when on the field, slashing .267/.316/.379 three home runs and just seven steals. Bourn isn't the base-stealing juggernaut he was just a few seasons ago, and can be avoided in most fantasy leagues. ANALYST:
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
