Tigers' Michael Pineda: Begins throwing program

Pineda (triceps) did some light throwing off flat ground Friday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. Pineda landed on the injured list with a triceps injury Sunday but was cleared to begin a throwing program less than a week after the transaction. A timetable for the right-hander's return to game action isn't yet known, but it's encouraging that he was able to resume throwing so quickly after sustaining his injury.

Tigers' Michael Pineda: Placed on 15-day IL

Pineda (triceps) was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday. Pineda had his right triceps tighten up on him Saturday night, forcing him to exit his start against the Twins early. He will now be on the shelf for at least two weeks while nursing his right arm. Pineda had said that the triceps was bothering him for a while, making it possible he remains on the IL longer than the minimum 15 days. Angel De Jesus was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Sunday to replace him on the active roster.

The right-hander said he'd been dealing with a bothersome right triceps for a few starts, but it tightened up on him Saturday. Manager A.J.

Tigers' Michael Pineda: Surrenders eight runs in loss

Pineda (2-5) took the loss during Saturday's 10-0 defeat at the hands of the Guardians, allowing eight runs on nine hits while striking out one in two innings. Pineda got off to a rocky start -- serving up a three-run home run to Jose Ramirez before recording an out -- but was able to retire the next three Guardians. The second inning went even worse as the 33-year-old put five of the first six batters on base, capped by another Ramirez home run, to fall behind 8-0 after two frames. Pineda's downfall might've been finding the zone too often as he fired 37 of 47 pitches for strikes, though that strategy had worked prior to Saturday as it led to a 3.58 ERA and a 1.36 BB/9 would rank third in MLB if he had enough innings to qualify. The veteran righty concludes the first half with a 5.22 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with 20 strikeouts in 39.2 innings across nine starts.
