— Player Notes
Advice: Rondon had a 1-2-3 inning Sunday in his second rehab appearance with Triple-A Toledo, hitting 98 mph a couple times on the radar gun. The goal is for him to make back-to-back appearances on Friday and Saturday and then a final appearance of more than one inning after that. If he gets through that with no issues, he'll be activated. Rondon has been out all season with right biceps tendinitis.

Advice: The hefty right-hander allowed one run on two hits over his 2/3 of an inning, throwing 14 of his 22 pitches for strikes. As long as he feels good after this outing, he'll work again on Sunday. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has indicated that he'd like Rondon to work on back-to-back days at Toledo before he's cleared to rejoin the Tigers bullpen, which could happen before the end of the month.

Advice: Rondon is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Thursday at Triple-A Toledo and will then pitch again Sunday. He's not scheduled for Monday, so it's probably going to be at least a week before the hard-throwing right-hander arrives in the Tigers' bullpen. He's been out all season with biceps tendinitis and missed the entire 2014 campaign following Tommy John surgery.Rotoworld
