Masahiro Tanaka will face hitters in live batting practice on Saturday.
Interesting that the Yankees have him facing live hitters after just a few session of throwing from flat ground. The eventual hope is that he'll be able to get at least one start in before the end of the regular season, but that seems pretty far off. He's not helping anyone in re-draft leagues this year. No one. 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.
